Hormone Levels of Diabetic Men Not Related to Prostate Cancer Risk

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period and is conventionally associated with an increased risk of cancer; however, inverse associations of diabetes with prostate cancer are well described. More...

Image: Scientists combined multiphoton microscopy with automated image and statistical analysis algorithms to distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue. In this image, collected in a completely label-free, noninvasive manner, collagen is colored green while ovarian metastatic cell clusters are presented in red (Photo courtesy of Tufts University).

Non-Invasive Imaging Detects Cancer at Molecular Level

For cancer patients the presence of metastases dictates the staging assessment, which in turn defines the appropriate treatment path selected. For gynecological malignancies, like ovarian carcinoma, it is of immense importance to differentiate between localized and metastatic disease status as that drastically affects management. More...

Prognostic Value of Specific Biomarker in Prostate Cancer Authenticated

Prostate cancer (PC) is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian men. In men with high-risk PC, progression of the disease will lead to biochemical recurrence (BCR), distant metastases, and disease-specific mortality. More...

Electronic Device May Help Diagnose Early Bladder Cancer

It is estimated that bladder cancer will affect 80,470 people in the USA this year, and about 17,670 deaths are likely to result from these cases. Doctors diagnose approximately half of all bladder cancers while the cancer is still in situ, while in about one-third the disease has already spread to other parts of the bladder. More...
