Dr_David_R_WilkinsonDr. David Wilkinson,  a practicing MD and Urology specialist residing in Bonita Springs FL, states that- “We’re getting better at determining low-grade prostate cancers that are not dangerous as well as those that could become more aggressive.”

The Prostate Advances include: >Genetic Testing where analyzing a tumor’s genes can predict which prostate cancers won’t need additional treatment.

Wilkinson suggest these 2 blood test:

{ A Prostate Health Index takes three measurements of blood and is three times better than a (Prostate Specific-Antigen) PSA}

{ Also: A fourK test that looks at four different markers that may have been missed in previous biopsies}

And who do we contact locally for such a thing as a prostate exam; your local oncologist. For now we will keep it social on our site and share 5- need to knows about prostate cancer from…….

zafar2Dr. Syed Zafar of Medical Oncologist-Florida Cancer Specialists says there are five things to know about cancer:

1. About one man in seven will be diagnosed with it in there life time. The incidence of prostate cancer is strongly correlated with age and disproportionatly affects the elderly. In the United States 35 percent of cases from 2003 to 2007 were in men aged 65-74, and another 25 percent were in men 75 years or older.

2. It is the third most common cause of cancer death among men aged 80 years and older. Fortunately, the age adjusted death rates from prostate cancer has declined.

3. Based on factors such as age, other health conditions and the type and stage of the prostate cancer, various treatment options are possible, including surgery radiation, chemo-therapy, hormone therapy, vaccine therapy or even watchful waiting and active surveillance. Your local oncologist is best able to discuss all of these options with you.

4. Not every man with prostate cancer needs to be treated immediately. The management of prostate cancer in men requires careful assessment of multiple factors including comorbidities, dependency, activities of daily living, nutritional status and age.

5. Most important risk factor for the development of prostate cancer is increasing age. Although prostate cancer is rare in men less that 40 years old, its incidence increases thereafter. Epidemiologic studies have shown that the risk of prostate cancer is higher in African-Americans compared to other ethnic groups.
