The solution to the overdiagnosis and overtreatment of prostate cancer could lie in every man’s genome. Stanford Medicine researchers take a step toward genetically personalized cancer screening.
Small increase in risk with prostate radiation
Receiving radiation for prostate cancer increases the risk of other cancers very slightly, Stanford Medicine researchers find, allowing providers to better inform patients weighing treatment options.
Looking at cause of enlarged prostates
Stanford scientists have identified a genetic signature that signals enlarged prostate tissue. The discovery has helped them find possible drivers of the condition.
Drug improves incontinence, sleep
A drug used to treat incontinence in women also shows promise in decreasing poor sleep, a new study from a Stanford researcher shows.
Male health condition linked to new risk
Harnessing the power of big data, Stanford researchers found that enlarged veins on the scrotum are linked with a higher risk of vascular and metabolic disease in men.
Regular pot use linked to more sex
The first study to examine the relationship between marijuana use and frequency of sexual intercourse at the population level in the United States shows a positive correlation between the two.
3-D bladder reconstruction
Researchers used advanced computer imaging technology to create a three-dimensional computer reconstruction of a patient’s bladder. The technique, which works on any hollow organ, could help doctors locate tumors or other disorders and prepare for surgery.
For infertile men, higher risk of health problems
Men who are infertile have a higher risk of developing a variety of other health problems, according to a new study.
