Prostate Cancer

EBRT Most Toxic, Costly vs. Prostatectomy, Brachytherapy

A long-term analysis of more than 100,000 patients with prostate cancer treated with external beam radiotherapy (EBRT), prostatectomy, and brachytherapy found EBRT to be the most toxic and most costly, investigators reported during the 2012 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium.

Vigorous Exercise Varies Prostate Gene Expression

Men with low-risk prostate cancer who participate in vigorous exercise—such as jogging, tennis or swimming—at least three hours per week have differentially expressed prostate genes compared with men who participated in less intense physical activity.

IMRT Better than CRT Therapy for Localized Prostate Cancer

Men with localized prostate cancer treated with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) experience “a simultaneous reduction in disease recurrence and morbidity” compared with conventional conformal radiation therapy (CRT), a study presented at the 2012 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium has found.
