Authors: Konat-Bąska K, Chicheł A, Staszek-Szewczyk U, Maciejczyk A, Matkowski R Abstract Purpose: Prostate and colorectal cancers are the first and the third most popular malignancies in male population, in which some patients may develop these tumors metachronously or synchronously. At present, there are no standard recommendations, and oncologists need to provide an optimal management for two different cancers with an acceptable risk of possible treatment of adverse effects. Material and methods: This case report presents the treatment of a 61-year-old patient suffering from synchronous prostate and rectal...

iot S, Pasquier D Abstract Prostate cancer is a sensitive adenocarcinoma, in more than 80% of cases, to chemical castration, due to its hormone dependence. Locally advanced and/or high-risk cancer is defined based on clinical stage, initial prostate specific antigen serum concentration value or high Gleason score. Hormone therapy associated with radiation therapy is the standard of management and improves local control, reduces the risk of distant metastasis and improves specific and overall survival. Duration of hormone therapy, dose level of radiation therapy alone or associated with brachytherapy are controvers...

Authors: Latorzeff I Abstract Prostate cancer is a sensitive adenocarcinoma, in more than 80 % of cases, to chemical castration, due to its hormone dependence. Locally advanced and/or high-risk cancer is defined based on clinical stage, initial PSA value or high Gleason score. Hormone therapy associated with radiation therapy is the standard of management and improves local control, reduces the risk of distant metastasis and improves specific and overall survival. Duration of hormone therapy, dose level of radiation therapy alone or associated with brachytherapy are controversial data in the literature. Radical pro...

Conclusions: Our study suggests HypoF EBRT can be delivered in combination with HDR for patients with ntermediate-risk and high-risk adenocarcinoma of the prostate without increasing toxicity compared to SF with an HDR boost. PMID: 30038640 [PubMed]

The long-term clinical outcomes and overall prognosis of patients presenting with GS 10 PCa are largely unknown because of its rarity. METHODS AND MATERIALS: The study included 112 patients with biopsy-determined GS 10 PCa who received treatment with radical prostatectomy (RP, n = 26), external bea...

Abstract PURPOSE: To report the results of endorectal coil magnetic resonance imaging (eMRI) in patients with localized prostate cancer, and how these images influenced radiotherapeutic management. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 122 men with localized adenocarcinoma of the prostate referred to radiation oncology underwent 3-T eMRI between 2010 and 2014, to evaluate candidacy for active surveillance (n = 26) and brachytherapy as monotherapy (n = 47), or to further risk stratify intermediate-risk (n = 29) or high-risk (n = 20) men before external beam radiation therapy. By National Comprehensive Cancer Netwo...

Adenocarcinoma of the prostate is effectively treated with multiple modalities including surgery, brachytherapy, and external-beam radiation therapy (EBRT). We prospectively measured longitudinal quality of life outcomes in men treated with each of these treatment modalities.
