Prostate cancer now kills more people than breast cancer, UK figures reveal

Male illness now third most common cause of cancer death behind lung and bowelProstate cancer has become the third most common cause of cancer death in the UK, overtaking breast cancer, despite improvements in survival rates for both.The top cancer killer in the UK is lung cancer, which claimed 35,486 lives in 2015, followed by colorectal cancer, with a toll of 16,067 people.Continue reading...

This article provides a status report on the global burden of cancer worldwide using the GLOBOCAN 2018 estimates of cancer incidence and mortality produced by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, with a focus on geographic variability across 20 world regions. There will be an estimated 18.1 million new cancer cases (17.0 million excluding nonmelanoma skin cancer) and 9.6 million cancer deaths (9.5 million excluding nonmelanoma skin cancer) in 2018. In both sexes combined, lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer (11.6% of the total cases) and the leading cause of cancer death (18.4% of the total cancer...

Authors: Rahouma M, Kamel M, Abouarab A, Eldessouki I, Nasar A, Harrison S, Lee B, Shostak E, Morris J, Stiles B, Altorki NK, Port JL Abstract Purpose: Previous studies have reported that psychological and social distresses associated with a cancer diagnosis have led to an increase in suicides compared to the general population. We sought to explore lung cancer-associated suicide rates in a large national database compared to the general population, and to the three most prevalent non-skin cancers [breast, prostate and colorectal cancer (CRC)]. Methods: The Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) data...

Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis, including HR QTOF MS, 1D and 2D NMR. Among isolates, verrucorosterone (7), 5,6α-epoxy-3β-hydroxy-(22E)-ergosta-...

Conclusions: PET imaging with radiolabeled amino acids has been shown be effective for brain tumor imaging, providing high contrast between tumor and normal brain parenchyma. The synthetic leucine amino acid analogue, fluciclovine has been recently FDA approved for evaluation of biochemical recurrent prostate cancer. Recent studies have been published demonstrating the utility of fluciclovine for glioma evaluation. Our findings suggest that fluciclovine can similarly be used for evaluation of new or recurrent brain metastasis in patients who previously have undergone brain radiotherapy where MRI is often limited due to bac...

Authors: Wang Y, Lan GB, Peng FH, Xie XB Abstract Renal transplantation is associated with an increased risk of cancers at multiple sites; however, the relationships between increased cancer risk and participant characteristics remain unclear. We searched PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library to identify prospective observational studies performed up to July 2017. Totally 11 prospective studies reported data on 79,988 renal transplant recipients were included. Renal transplant recipients were found to display a higher risk of all cancers (standard incidence ratio [SIR]: 2.89; 95% CI: 2.13-3.91; P

In battle, the standard-bearer honorarily carries the flag, which represents the nobility and purpose of continuing the fight. In the war on cancer many advances have been made that surround the more common cancers such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer. However, there are these rare tumors of mesenchymal origin, sarcomas, which have disproportionately advanced the front lines of our understanding of cancer mechanisms. It is because of sarcoma research that we even know what oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes are.
