Being a tall man is unsafe . . . when it comes to prostate cancer

Being a tall man is unsafe . . . when it comes to prostate cancer

"The finding of high risk in taller men may provide insights into the mechanisms underlying prostate cancer development, for example related to early nutrition and growth", said Dr Aurora Perez-Cornago, the lead author on the study.

Susannah Brown, senior scientist at the World Cancer Research Fund, said: "This study supports our own research which also found an increased risk of prostate cancer in taller men".

The same held true regarding the size of a man's waist. Every extra 10cm on the waistline was associated with a 13% greater likelihood of having high-grade prostate cancer and an 18% bigger risk of dying from the disease.

"In fact if every man in the United Kingdom maintained a healthy weight, about 1 in 10 cases could be prevented each year".

Perez-Cornago and her colleagues came to their conclusions based on data from almost 142,000 men in eight European countries who participated in a large-scale study of cancer and nutrition.

Men with early stage prostate cancer who have surgery to remove their tumor do not live longer than those who receive no treatment at all, a long-running clinical trial has concluded.

"Further studies are also needed to understand if men who are overweight or obese might be at a higher risk of dying from prostate cancer and, if so, why", she added.

Tall height and obesity are associated with an increased risk of aggressive prostate cancer: results from the EPIC cohort study. These results emphasize the importance of studying risks for prostate cancer separately by stage and grade of the tumor.

"We also found that a healthy body weight is associated with a reduced risk of high grade prostate cancer and death from prostate cancer years later". Higher BMI was also found to be linked with risk of developing high-grade tumours.

"The link can be explained by thinking of height as a marker of the growth process that occurs earlier in life". "High fatty diet and red meat are the main causes of prostate cancer", P K Julka, Head of the Department Oncology All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), told IANS.

SC mother, 2 kids found shot in SUV connected to 4th killing
The fatal shooting happened late Thursday afternoon in the parking garage at the Main & Stone apartments in downtown Greenville. Hashe said the ages and identities of those found dead in Easley will not be released until family members are notified.

Dr. Christopher Knoedler of Metro Urology in the Twin Cities said about one-third of patients in his practice with prostate cancer undergo observation rather than surgery.

In the Republic prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men, behind non-melanoma skin cancer, with 3,213 cases diagosed in 2013. "What this study says is we have to pay attention to what we find at the time of diagnosis, and then tailor the best treatment for that particular man". "If they have a large prostate, it's easier to miss something in it". However, he notes that differences in prostate cancer detection could also be contributing to the results seen.

In addition, 27 men (7 percent) in the surgery group died of prostate cancer, compared with 42 men (11 percent) in the observation group. Those factors were grouped under combined categories of aggressive or non-aggressive tumors. On the other hand, obese men can reduce their risk by losing weight.

They say obese men may be less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer, because they have lower concentrations of prostate-specific antigens, are less likely to undergo a biopsy and tend to have larger prostates, making detection more hard.

Prostate cancer expert Dr. Sumanta Pal agreed with Stevens. Observation only involves doctors asking about health problems that may or may not be related to the prostate cancer.
