Conclusion: Color-coding of prostate biopsy core specimens may assist in tailoring the approach for preservation of the neurovascular bundles without compromising early oncological efficacy. Further study is required to determine whether this simple modification of the prostate biopsy protocol is valuable in larger groups of patients.

ConclusionWe found good preliminary evidence for online supportive care among PCS, but little high level evidence. Generally, the samples were small and unrepresentative. Further, inadequate acceptability measures made it difficult to determine actual PCS acceptability and satisfaction, and lack of control groups precluded strong conclusions regarding efficacy. Translation also appears minimal; few interventions are still publicly available. Larger trials with appropriate control groups and greater emphasis on translation of effective interventions is recommended.Implications for Cancer SurvivorsProstate cancer survivors h...

This study aimed to review the effect of decision aids on men's screening intention, screening utilization, and the congruence between intentions and uptake.Evidence acquisitionData sources were searched through April 6, 2018, and included MEDLINE, Scopus, CENTRAL, CT.gov, Cochrane report, PsycARTICLES, PsycINFO, and reference lists. This study included RCTs and observational studies of decision aids that measured prostate screening intention or behavior. The analysis was completed in April 2018.Evidence synthesisEighteen studies (13 RCTs, four before–after studies, and one non-RCT) reported data on screening intenti...

Perineural spread of prostate cancer into pelvic peripheral nerves is a rare but increasingly recognized entity. This form of metastasis invades the lumbosacral plexus via splanchnic nerves innervating the prostate. The prevalence of perineural spread is likely underappreciated and further imaging based studies are needed to elucidate its true frequency.

People living with HIV are at increased risk for AIDS-defining and non-AIDS-defining cancers, but little is known about their risk of first versus second primary cancers. We identified first and second primary cancers that occurred in above population expected numbers among people diagnosed with HIV in San Francisco, and compared first and second ...
