Enlargement of the Prostate
  • Prostatectomy, or the removal of the Prostate, is typically caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlargement of the prostate) or cancer. Prostate cancer affects approximately 189,000 men in the US each year.[badrobotsurgery.com]
  • A physician can diagnose enlarged prostate through a digital rectal exam which typically occurs during a routine physical examination.[medicalneg.com]
  • In many of those instances, although the patient was exhibiting signs that would be either an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer, the doctor simply assumed it was an enlarged prostate, and thereafter did not perform or recommend any other tests.[litigationandtrial.com]

  • "The PSA level may differ depending on many factors such as age, race and family history of prostate diseases such as prostatitis.[prnewswire.com]
  • Like other saddle issues, you can minimize or even eliminate this one with proper saddle adjustment and bike fit, says Pruitt, who's worked with men with prostate disease using PSA as a bike-fit marker.[bicycling.com]
  • Since urinary changes are often the first signs of prostate problems, it may be difficult for the man with spinal cord injury to recognize early prostate disease without regular PSA (prostatic specific antigen) blood tests.[stanleyducharme.com]
Prostatic Pain
  • At the end of the trial, participants in both groups felt better, but those in the aerobic exercise group experienced significantly greater improvements in prostatitis pain, anxiety and depression, and quality of life.[harvardprostateknowledge.org]


  • Many large-scale prospective studies have analysed the correlations of patient-related and treatment-related parameters with acute and late toxicity to optimize patient selection and treatment planning.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The treatment sections of the book correspond to the staging of disease. The treatment of localized disease addresses the range of multidisciplinary management options including a discussion of prostate cancer's impact on the quality of life.[books.google.com]
  • “Removing rectal injury from the treatment essentially makes radiation therapy the treatment of choice for prostate cancer,” Kenneth Tokita, MD, senior author of the study and the founder and medical director of Cancer Center of Irvine in Irvine, Calif[newswise.com]
  • Besides the clear benefits to the patients, the study shows such preventive measures can also help avoid prolonged, expensive hospitalization, need for additional treatment or surgery, as well as the costs of follow-up treatments.[sciencedaily.com]
  • We know from other studies that statins may augment the effect of conventional systemic treatments. Here, we see it may have a protective effect in the context of radiotherapy.[journals.lww.com]

  • The role of statins in preventing or ameliorating late radiation injury deserves further study.” He and his colleagues recruited 53 patients for the study. “We followed them all for a minimum of two years,” Anscher said.[journals.lww.com]
