Background: Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in Europe. Both the European Association of Urologists (EAU) and the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) provide evidence-based guidelines for the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. NICE is a national body involved in the production of efficacious guidelinesFile Size: 79KB. Prostate Cancer a Year Before Diagnosis An annual PSA velocity of > 2 ng/mL in the year before prostate cancer diagnosis was associated with a significantly shorter time-to-death from prostate cancer after surgery or radiation therapy (D’Amico AV et al., N Engl J Med, , ; D’Amico AV et al., JAMA, , ).

Spread beyond the prostate gland). It explains what localised prostate cancer is, the treatment options and their pros and cons. Its purpose is to help men make decisions about these treatments.
This guide does not discuss screening for prostate cancer using the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test or treatment for advanced prostate cancer. Whether you or someone you love has cancer, knowing what to expect can help you cope. From basic information about cancer and its causes to in-depth information on specific cancer types – including risk factors, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment options – you’ll find it here.
Most localised prostate cancer is slow-growing and may not need treatment or shorten a man’s life. For many men who have treatment for localised prostate cancer, the treatment will get rid of the cancer.
For some men, treatment may be less successful and the cancer may come back. If this happens, you might need further treatment.
Prostate Cancer Early Detection, Diagnosis, and Staging | Finding Prostate Cancer Early Catching cancer early often allows for more treatment options. €Some early cancers may have signs and symptoms that can be noticed, but that is not always the case.
Can Prostate Cancer Be Found Early. Prostate cancer may follow an aggressive course, similar to that of other cancers. However, many prostate cancers are indolent, and will have no impact on health, even without treatment.
The natural history of prostate cancer diagnosed in the s and s has been well-described. For example, Albertsen et al.

Specificity of prostate-specific antigen. PSA is highly abundant in the prostate epithelium, and it is virtually organ specific. Because, though, it is expressed in both normal, cancerous, and hyperplastic tissue, it suffers from poor specificity in discriminating cancer from benign prostate conditions, especially benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which also results in increased Cited by: Early detection and improvements in therapy have resulted in a dramatic decrease in prostate cancer deaths (by 40 to 50 percent) since the early s.
Screenings to detect prostate cancer early. One of the best ways to detect prostate cancer early is through screening — testing to find the disease in men with no prostate cancer symptoms. Localised prostate cancer was more commonly diagnosed in men randomised to screening (RR95% CI to ), whilst the proportion of men.
To date, prostate cancer screening fulfils only the first condition. See the Health Technology Assessment Programme’s monograph Diagnosis, management and screening of early localised prostate cancer: a review for details.
Evidence from a prostate cancer screening trial in Europe, ERSPC, has shown that screening reduced mortality by 20 per cent. Prostate cancer, according to the World Health Organization, is the second most common cause of cancer in males worldwide. An estimated million.
Prostate cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the prostate. The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive lies just below the bladder (the organ that collects and empties urine) and in front of the rectum (the lower part of the intestine).It is about the size of a walnut and surrounds part of the urethra (the tube that empties urine from.
The screening tests consist of a digital rectal examination and a PSA blood test. The prostate gland may feel entirely normal despite the presence of an early cancer. Prostate cancer is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States and Europe.
The natural ageing of the population as well as the continued and widespread use of diagnostic tests such as prostate specific antigen (PSA), has led to an increase in the numbers of men diagnosed with localised prostate by: Prostate cancer: diagnosis and management.
Clinical guideline [CG] Published date: 08 January Guidance. This guideline has been updated and replaced by. Doctors will use the results of your prostate examination, biopsy and scans to identify the "stage" of your prostate cancer (how far the cancer has spread). The stage of the cancer will determine which types of treatments will be necessary.
If prostate cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, the chances of survival are generally good. Treatments for prostate cancer. Broadly speaking, prostate cancer can be divided into cancer that has not spread outside of the prostatic capsule (localised disease) and cancer that has spread either ‘locally’ to adjacent structures or to distant organs, such as lymph nodes and bone (‘distant’ or metastatic disease).
Your treatment options will depend on whether your cancer is contained within the prostate gland (), has spread just outside of the prostate (locally advanced) or had spread to other parts of the body ().You may have a choice of treatments.
Your doctor or specialist nurse will explain all your treatment options, and help you to choose the right treatment for you.
Prostate cancer is receiving ever more publicity with the result that more men are having their prostate specific antigen checked and a greater proportion of men are diagnosed with potentially curable localised disease.
