PSA Levels and Prostate Cancer

PSA Levels and Prostate Cancer

In a man with a worrisome PSA a physician may recommend a prostate biopsy. The grade of the cancer is not assessed until this is done. For men with higher PSA's it is appropriate to obtain bone and cat scans as well.

[Part 2 of 7] Testosterone Replacement In Men

[Part 2 of 7] Testosterone Replacement In Men

HERE ARE THE BIGGEST BENEFITS OF OPTIMIZING YOUR TESTOSTERONE LEVELS. Increases sexual desire and performance. It is a natural antidepressant. Increases lean mass and reduces visceral fat. Reduces heart disease. Reduces your risk of Alzheimer's disease. Increases energy and decreases brain fog. Lowers your LDL (bad cholesterol). Reduces inflammation. As you can see, the benefits of replacing testosterone as you age are overwhelming. HERE ARE THE CONVERSATIONS THAT I BELIEVE THAT YOU NEED TO BE HAVING WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN ABOUT REPLACING YOUR TESTOSTERONE. 1) WHAT IS MY TESTOSTERONE LEVEL AND IS IT NORMAL? In last week's blog, we discussed the difference between normal hormone levels and optimal levels. You have to know your numbers so you don't fall victim of normal levels. The goal is to optimize your levels to where you were as a young male and the best version of yourself. The two tests you should request are total and free testosterone. In my private practice, I optimize total testosterone to a level of 1000-1200. Depending on the lab your physician uses, optimal free testosterone levels are 170-200 for Quest Diagnostics and 30-40 for LabCorp. Free testosterone is the active form of testosterone that is working at the cellular level so it needs to be checked with total testosterone. 2) DO I HAVE ANY RISK FACTORS BEFORE STARTING TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY? As I mentioned previously, men over 35 with no active prostate cancer or a history of prostate cancer with a PSA level under 1 are safe to pursue bioidentical testosterone replacement. Get your baseline PSA numbers so you really know what your risk profile is. I hope you can see the wonderful health benefits of replacing testosterone in men.

Best INEXPENSIVE AR-15s with IV8888

Top inexpensive AR-15s to get with IV8888 and John Lovell of the Warrior Poet Society. Chad and Eric of the Iraqveteran8888 channel have a habit of torture testing guns to see which hold up the best. I was paricularly excited to get their opinions to this topic because I don't often use the entry-level, inexpensive AR-15s. The truth is that there are some great AR-15s out there that are tough and come without the big price tag. In this video we give special mention to the M&P Sport 2, the Savage AR-15, Palmetto State ar-15 to include their premium option, and CMMG AR-15s.

A Date with BPH - Prostate Enlargement Symptoms, Causes, Complications, Diagnosis

http://www.ayurstate.com/index.htm?aff=y/17 1) Providing Phytonutrient Nourishment - Years of stressful living caused damage to your body. To help address this, Ayurstate releases hundreds of phytonutrients that act at the molecular level to promote Prostate Health. 2) Increasing Soy Intake - Researchers believe that the increasing estrogen-to-testosterone ratio brought on by aging is one of the factors that adversely affects the size of the prostate gland. 2 ounces or more of soy in your daily diet will help decrease estrogen levels and restore proper estrogen-to-testosterone ratio that becomes skewed as men get into their 60s and beyond. Good sources of soy include tofu (soybean curd), miso, tempeh, roasted soy nuts, and soy flour or powder. 3) Increasing Selenium Intake - Selenium is essential for good prostate health. Selenium-rich foods include wheat germ, tuna, herring and other seafood and shellfish, beef liver and kidney, eggs, sunflower and sesame seeds, cashews, Brazil nuts, mushrooms, garlic, onions, and kelp. 4) Increasing Zinc Intake - 15 mg of zinc are needed daily for healthy prostate function. Pumpkin seed in the shell, oysters, beans, and nuts are excellent sources of zinc. 5) Minimizing Alcohol Consumption - Alcohol depletes both zinc and vitamin B6 (which is necessary for zinc absorption). 6) Eating Healthy - Eat lots of fruits and vegetables to get the necessary antioxidants in your diet. Avoid saturated fats, sugars and processed foods. High-fat foods like meats and dairy products can elevate testosterone level which stimulates prostate cell growth and enlargement. 7) Supplementing Diet - Take a daily multivitamin supplement which includes at least the following for supporting prostate health - Vitamin A (25,000 IU), Vitamin E (1,200 IU), and Lycopene (10 mg). 8) Improving Circulation - Perform Kegel exercises to improve blood flow to the prostate and urogenital tissues. Kegel exercises are done by pulling up all the muscles around the scrotum and anus, holding, and releasing. 10 repetitions of this movement, 5-6 times daily will maximize blood flow to your prostate gland. 9) Adopting Healthy Lifestyle - Get sufficient rest and exercise regularly. Regular exercise has been shown to strengthen the immune system and improve digestion, circulation, and the removal of waste matter from the body. Exercise also prevents obesity, which is a risk factor for many diseases, including cancer. Regular exercise may also reduce the risk of prostate gland enlargement.

Apalutamide Delays Prostate Cancer Metastasis By Over 2 Years

Apalutamide Delays Prostate Cancer Metastasis By Over 2 Years

Apalutamide Delays Prostate Cancer Metastasis By Over 2 Years A newly developed drug called apalutamide can delay the progression of a hard-to-treat form of prostate cancer, research shows. The drug, an investigational androgen receptor inhibitor, was the focus of a multi-institutional, phase 3 clinical trial led by investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). “Our study found that apalutamide treatment markedly improved metastasis-free survival and other clinical outcomes in men with castration-resistant prostate cancers and no detectable metastases. At this time, there are no approved treatments for men in that situation, so we need to wait until their disease progresses to add the standard therapies that have been approved for metastatic disease,” corresponding author Matthew Smith, MD, PhD, of the MGH Cancer Center, said. Androgen-deprivation Therapy Androgen-deprivation therapy, either through the use of drugs that suppress testosterone production, or surgical removal of the testicles, is standard treatment for men with metastatic prostate cancer and is also used for non-metastatic cancer. Unfortunately, androgen deprivation stops working for almost all patients, leading to what is called castration-resistant disease. In such patients whose cancer has not yet spread, a rapid rise in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels warns of the near-term development of metastases, the major cause of complications and death from prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the second most deadly form of the disease for men in the US, and the American Cancer Society anticipates that it will kill nearly 30,000 people this year alone while another 164,000 are diagnosed. Most forms of prostate cancer grow slowly, meaning they may not be detectable for many years. Apalutamide Apalutamide works by binding to the androgen receptor, blocking its activation by testosterone and other androgens. Apalutamide is being developed by The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, which sponsored this study. A previous phase 2 clinical trial of apalutamide for men with nonmetastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer at high risk of progression showed that the drug was well tolerated and achieved responses in most patients. Apalutamide is similar to enzalutamide both structurally and pharmacologically . Enzalutamide was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for medical use in the United States in August 2012. This trial, conducted at 322 sites in 26 countries in North American, Europe and the Asia-Pacific, involved more than 1,200 patients between October 2013 and December 2016. All participants had nonmetastatic prostate cancer that had stopped responding to androgen-deprivation therapy and a rapid PSA doubling time, indicating an elevated risk for metastasis. Participants were randomized to receive a daily oral dose of either apalutamide or a placebo and were evaluated every 16 weeks for signs of disease progression. As of May 19, 2017, the average progression-free survival – the time from randomization to the first evidence of metastasis – was 40.5 months for participants receiving apalutamide, compared with 16.2 months for those taking a placebo. Taking apalutamide also reduced other signs of disease progression – including development of imaging-confirmed metastasis or symptoms such as bone pain – and death from any cause. Members of the apalutamide group who continued to benefit from the drug were able to continue treatment, and members of the placebo group could begin receiving apalutamide on an open-label basis. Several additional phase 3 trials of apalutamide are currently underway for other prostate cancer disease states, including studies of both earlier and later stage disease. The current report was co-authored by 16 additional investigators – from academic medical centers and from Janssen Research & Development – in nine countries. “This trial’s results suggest that the availability of apalutamide should offer men with nonmetastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer a treatment that can delay or prevent the development of metastases and other complications associated with disease progression,” Semifinals, Australian Open 2018, Australian Open, 2018 Australian Open, vaccine, nydailynews, injection, Cancer, Immunotherapy, American Heart Association, amyloid beta, united Arab emirates, oseltamivir, Georgia health officials, flu-related deaths, health, Killer, flu, flu season, flu virus, virus, spokesman, timesfreepress, fox10phoenix, heart health, CNN Live, CNN News, CNN TV TIme, CNN TV, FOX, FOX TV Live, FOx TV, FOX TIme News, FOx NEws TIme, Fox News, https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8c-enNLOhBmoqNIUpY1QMQszVfc3yLT-
