Pre- and post-radical prostatectomy testosterone levels in prostate cancer patients.

Radical prostatectomy is one of the treatment of choices for localized prostate cancer. Published data show that radical prostatectomy is associated with both an increase and decrease in testosterone ...

Surgical treatment of prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed malignant neoplasms. In Hungary, 4000-4500 men are diagnosed annually, which is below the European incidence. In contrast, the Hungarian prostate ...

Is it worth to perform salvage radical prostatectomy for radio-recurrent prostate cancer? A literature review.

Salvage radical prostatectomy (sRP) represents a curative option for prostate cancer (PCa) biochemical recurrence (BCR) after radiation therapy (RT). In this review, we aimed to outline the contempora...

Elective pelvic irradiation in prostate cancer patients with biochemical failure following radical prostatectomy: A propensity score matching analysis.

To investigate whether whole pelvic radiotherapy (WPRT) improves biochemical relapse-free survival (bRFS) vs. prostate bed radiotherapy (PBRT) in prostate cancer patients receiving salvage radiotherap...

A Case of Polymyalgia Rheumatica Following Robotic-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy for High-Grade Prostate Cancer.

BACKGROUND Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) is a common rheumatic disease in patients over the age of 50 years. Underlying triggers for PMR are not well understood, but there have been reports of cases pr...

Laparoscopic and Robot-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy - a Comparative Study

Men with localized prostate cancer are analyzed. Purpose: This randomized study compares outcomes between robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy

Prostate Cancer Intervention Versus Observation Trial (PIVOT):A Randomized Trial Comparing Radical Prostatectomy Versus Palliative Expectant Management for the Treatment of Clinically Localized Prostate Cancer

Radical prostatectomy provides potentially curative removal of the cancer. However, it subjects patients to the morbidity and mortality of the surgery and may be neither necessary nor effe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Complete or partial surgical removal of the prostate. Three primary approaches are commonly employed: suprapubic - removal through an incision above the pubis and through the urinary bladder; retropubic - as for suprapubic but without entering the urinary bladder; and transurethral (TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF PROSTATE).

Methods to identify and characterize cancer in the early stages of disease and predict tumor behavior.

Thorium oxide (ThO2). A radiographic contrast agent that was used in the early 1930s through about 1954. High rates of mortality have been linked to its use and it has been shown to cause liver cancer.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)
