Blog Updates for February 2012

Feb 29, 2012. In Advice to the Newly Diagnosed we added: In [this PCRI weekly article] Dr. Mark Scholtz reports on a Journal of Urology study of 127,000 prostate cancer patients where it was found that:
1. "For the whole group of 127,000 men, the prostate cancer mortality rate at 15 years was 10%.
2. Men in the best risk category (i.e. with only a small nodule palpable on digital rectal exam and a Gleason score of 7 or less - termed Group I) had a 5% chance for prostate cancer mortality at 15 years.
3. For men in the worst group with seminal vesicle invasion, lymph node metastasis or Gleason scores of 8 or above had a 27% risk of prostate cancer mortality at 15 years."

Feb 25, 2012. In Advice to the Newly Diagnosed we added: Referring to the quality of life from prostate cancer treatments: This 2012 paper: "[PMID: 22358375] presents results consist with those discussed" (in our blog post).
