PSA levels after prostatectomy

Published: Wed, 05 Dec 2018 13:00:00 PST

A prostatectomy is one treatment option for prostate cancer. It involves the surgical removal of the prostate gland. Following a prostatectomy, doctors carry out regular prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing to check that the cancer is not returning. Learn more about PSA after a prostatectomy here.

Can drinking alcohol lead to prostate cancer?

Published: Wed, 05 Dec 2018 11:00:00 PST

Doctors do not fully understand what causes prostate cancer. This disease may have an association with alcohol, but scientists need to do more research to confirm the potential link. Here, learn more about the risks of alcohol, how doctors screen for and treat prostate cancer, and the survival rates for this disease.

Universal 10-minute cancer test in sight

Published: Wed, 05 Dec 2018 09:00:00 PST

Cancer cells have a unique pattern of chemical tags on their DNA, which differs from that of healthy cells and could serve as the basis for a universal test.

Does HIV increase cancer risk?

Published: Tue, 04 Dec 2018 12:00:00 PST

HIV can weaken a person’s immune system, which can increase the risk of certain types of cancer. Such cancers include Kaposi’s sarcoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and cervical, lung, anal, and oral cancer. However, effective treatment can significantly reduce the risk of developing these cancers.

End-of-life symptoms of metastatic breast cancer

Published: Wed, 28 Nov 2018 05:00:00 PST

The end-of-life symptoms associated with metastatic breast cancer depend on where a person’s cancer has spread to, and they can include both physical and mental issues. Treatment focuses on improving quality of life and caring for the individual’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Learn more here.

'DNA origami' tackles multidrug-resistant cancer cells

Published: Mon, 26 Nov 2018 09:00:00 PST
