Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK; affecting 250,000 men. Risk factors for prostate cancer include age (average age at diagnosis is 70), a family history and a Caribbean or ...
Prostate cancer is the development of cancer in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most often, prostate cancer spreads to the bones and also to the liver or lungs. It’s rar...
Researchers construct a 3-D cell model of the prostate gland and use it to show that BPA exposure may increase the risk of cancer in the organ.
Studies using rodent and adult human prostate stem-progenitor cell models indicate that exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) during development increases susceptibility of the prostate gland to premalignancy...
Obesity has direct consequences on health and is associated with the onset of aggressive cancers, but the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon are little known. Researchers have recently elucidated o...
(HealthDay)—Chemotherapy at the start of hormone therapy can extend the lives of men with prostate cancer that has spread beyond the gland, a new study finds.
Men who are 40 and older should have an annual prostate exam as part of their overall prostate health routine. New York, New York (PRWEB) October 27, 2015 When a man reaches the age of 40, he should ...
In this review, the authors examine the latest evidence on the roles of gland atrophy and ductal hyperkeratinization in the development of meibomian gland dysfunction. BMC Ophthalmology
Leiomyosarcoma is a rare malignant mesenchymal tumor; and even rarer in the salivary gland. How was diagnosis ascertained in this case? BMC Clinical Pathology
HOXB13, a member of the homeobox proteins family, is a key regulator of the epithelial differentiation in the prostate gland. HOXB13 is overexpressed during malignant progression of the prostatic tiss...
The value of FDG-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for detecting prostate cancer is unknown. We aimed to investigate the clinical value of incidental prostate FDG uptake on PET...
To create a predictive nomogram for biochemical failure following primary whole-gland cryoablation of the prostate for localized prostate cancer (LPCa).
Accuracy of biopsy scheme depends on different parameters. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level and digital rectal examination (DRE) influenced the detection rate and suggested the biopsy scheme to a...
A fully differentiated epithelium of the normal prostate gland allows epithelial cells to de-differentiate into mesenchymal-like derivatives via the process of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) ...
