TOPIC – Prostate Cancer

INFO – An international study led by Toronto researchers has found that almost 50 per cent of men over age 60 have prostate cancer at the time of death, but die of other causes.

The study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, involved posthumous examinations of 320 men in from Russia and Japan between 2008 and 2011. None of the men had been diagnosed with prostate cancer before their deaths.

Lead author Dr. Alexandre Zlotta, director of uro-oncology at Mount Sinai Hospital’s Murray Koffler Urologic Wellness Centre and a scientist with Mount Sinai’s Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, said the study underscores the need for better screening methods that don’t just determine if a man has prostate cancer but whether it is an aggressive and life-threatening form of the disease.
