Prostate cancer increasingly targeting younger men

It’s a procedure called HIFU, with a device that uses high-intensity ultrasound waves to destroy cancerous prostate tissue. 94 percent of patients are cancer-free after 5 years, with no further treatments. Read the full story below. HIFU has many proven advantages over traditional treatment modalities for prostate disease. Call (707) 546-5553 to make an appointment with Dr. Lazar.

More than 26,000 men will die from prostate cancer this year. That was not an option for John DeCamillis. “As I tell people Brooke, it wasn’t a matter of if I was going to be diagnosed. I’d [...]

Researchers target cholesterol to stop prostate cancer

Advanced prostate cancer and high blood cholesterol have long been known to be connected, but it has been a chicken-or-egg problem. Now a team led by researchers at the Duke Cancer Institute have identified a cellular process that cancer cells hijack to hoard cholesterol and fuel their growth. Identifying this process could inform the development of better ways to control cholesterol accumulation in tumors, potentially leading to improved survival for prostate cancer patients. The findings are published online this month in the journal Cancer Research. "Prostate cancer cells, as well as some other solid tumors, have been shown to contain higher cholesterol levels than normal cells," said senior author Donald McDonnell, Ph.D., chairman of the Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology at Duke. "All cells [...]
