Authors: Wierzba W, ƚliwczynski A, Karnafel W, Dziemidok P, Pinkas J Abstract Introduction: Many epidemiological studies show a correlation between the risk of cancer and type 2 diabetes mellitus in various populations. Material and methods: The material was obtained from the database of the National Health Fund. This publication presents a comparison of the incidence of new malignancies in rural and urban populations of diabetic patients in Poland based on the database of the National Health Fund for the period between 1.05.2008 and 30.09.2014. Results: Comparison of the mean incidence of selected maligna...

This study aimed to explore whether a correlation exists between the incidence and mortality of cancers and normalized internet search volumes on the big data platform, Baidu. We also assessed whether the distribution of people who searched for specific types of cancer differed by gender. Finally, we determined whether there were regional disparities among people who searched the Web for cancer-related information. Methods: Standard Boolean operators were used to choose search terms for each type of cancer. Spearman’s correlation analysis was used to explore correlations among monthly search index values for each can...

ConclusionsThe role of the microbiome in genitourinary cancer is an emerging field that merits further studies. Translating microbiome research into clinical action will require incorporation of microbiome surveillance into ongoing and future clinical trials as well as expansion of studies to include metagenomic sequencing and metabolomics.Patient summaryThis review covers recent evidence that microbial populations that reside in the genitourinary tract—and were previously not known to exist—may influence the development of genitourinary malignancies including bladder, kidney, and prostate cancers. Furthermore,...

AbstractAimsTo investigate the role of Radiation Oncology in the management of genito-urinary (GU) cancer excluding prostate and penile cancer.MethodsThe questionnaire was focused on the evaluation of the degree of involvement of radiation oncologists in the work-up of bladder, renal cell carcinoma and testicular cancer (TC).ResultsEighty-eight radiation oncologists completed the survey. The majority (85.4%) of participating radiation oncologists were senior consultants (>  5 years of experience). Sixty-four (73.6%) carried out a multidisciplinary tumor board discussion of GU cases, while 23 (26.4%) did not....

The last 2 years (2014 and 2015) have witnessed major advances in the treatment of genitourinary malignancies. Of note and in marked contrast to previous years, all four major cancers (prostate cancer, testicular cancer, kidney cancer, and bladder cancer) have benefited from this progress. In prostate cancer, it was clearly demonstrated that a local treatment should be administered for high-risk localised disease. The standard of care was changed for patients with upfront metastatic disease with combined androgen deprivation therapy plus docetaxel becoming the new standard for fit patients with multiple bony metastases.

Conclusion Dans notre centre, la mortalité spécifique reste élevée et les causes sont dominées par les cancers urologiques. Objective To identify the causes of deaths in a urology department of sub-Saharan Africa. Patients and Methods This is a retrospective study including all deaths between February 2010 and February 2014. The parameters studied were age at death, gender, co-morbidities, hospital stay and the cause of death. Results The number of deaths was 132 including 7 women and 125 men. Hospital mortality was 2.9%. The average age of deceased patients was 63,6 (median age 66). T...

Cancer remains to be the second most common cause of death, and its incidence and mortality rates are increasing in China. According to the 2015 National Central Cancer Registry (NCCR) of China, the incidence of bladder cancer and prostate cancer ranked sixth and seventh, respectively, in male cancers. The majority of prostate cancer patients were diagnosed at an advanced stage. Early diagnosis of prostate cancer is the key to improve prostate cancer survival in China. Radical prostatectomy or radical radiotherapy is the main treatment for localized prostate cancer, and a comprehensive therapy based on androgen deprivation...
