Prolaris® test predicts mortality risk in prostate cancer biopsy study (Eurekalert)

(_Myriad Genetics, Inc._) Data presented at AUA 2014 show the Prolaris test accurately predicted mortality risk from prostate cancer within 10 years in patients diagnosed with needle biopsy. The use of this test could improve treatment for patients at all risk levels based on each man’s personal risk of disease progression. Prolaris has been proven to predict prostate cancer- specific disease progression in 11 clinical trials with more than 6,000 patients.

Removed prostate cancer, rising psa levels?My dad is 70 had his prostate removed around 3 years ago. He’s been fine ever since, but recently he had a blood test that showed chnages in his psa levels? What does this mean. Has the cancer spread through the body or still where the prostate used to be.

[display_name id=”0″]If your father had his prostate removed they removed the whole thing. A rising PSA is an indication of disease progression, but this does not mean it has spread through the body. It is not unusual for a PSA to start rising years before metastatic disease is evident and it is not likely any other tests will be run at this point. Hormone therapy should keep it manageable for years to come. Typically prostate cancer is slow growing and many patients live 15-20 years with the disease.

Prostate Cancer????My dad is 84 Years old and He recently had a routine blood work and I had the results. Can you halp me to understand it?

Results(Written by doctor Genreal doctor)

84 y/o male no regular medical f/u with elevated PSA noted on recent routine blood work (PSA= 14.99). On P.E. Prostate enlarged 1 1/2 X’s firm non-tender & nodules Pt denies SX’s of hesitancy frequency.

An urologist made a rectal test and said he probably has prostate cancer but that dosn’t not matter anymore because he is 84. I’m not happy with that and i would like to have different opinions about it. This doctor told my dad to take DOXAZOSIN 2 Mg about six weeks.

Does this indicate cancer symptoms??
Is it a good idea to do a surgery?

Posted by ilm2008
[display_name id=”0″]Elevated PSA levels do not necessarily mean prostate cancer. – especially in the elderly. PSA levels increase normally with age. Because of this , several prominent medical journals have recently published articles that do not recommend PSA test in men over 75. Surgery is rarely recommended in this age group because of the risks of any type of surgery requiring anesthetic. Prostate cancers are very slow growing. At your father’s age – he has a much greater chance of dying from other causes including complications of surgery than he would actually dying from prostate cancer. I know dealing with health problems in elderly parents is difficult – mine are in the same age group as your father. It sounds like your doctor is following guidelines and doing what is best to give your dad a higher quality of life by treating this conservatively. Best wishes!
Also – a PSA of 14 is not extremely high – indicating if it is cancer it is probably in the earlier stages.

In treating prostate cancer does lupron cause psa level to decrease?
Posted by sheila_pair
[display_name id=”0″]I had prostate cancer in 2005 and was given lupron to start with. It does not treat or cure your cancer. It only puts the cancer on hold for a while some times up to ten years… It is not a cure.. I do not recall if my psa went down though. I had proton radiation at loma linda university medical center in loma linda california.. Proton radiation has a 90 % cure rate and no side effects.. In my opinion it is the very best treatment for prostate cancer.. If you want to know more about it… There is a website called Proton Bob that tells about prostate cancer and proton radiation.. It is very different from conventional radiation. Also there is a book just recently out that would be helpful id think.. It is called YOU CAN BEAT PROSTATE CANCER and was written by Robert J. Marckini, a prostate cancer survivor.. The book is great it tells all about prostate cancer, then tells about all of the various treatment options as well as the pros and cons of each type treatment and the side effects… The book can be purchased at Barnes and Noble and other book stores or on line at the Proton Bob website.. I know I didnt answer your question, but maybe some of this will be helpful..…
