  2. Prostate Grown From Adult Stem Cell

    Oct. 22, 2008 -- Genentech researchers have found adult stem cells in the prostate capable of regenerating a new prostate gland -- or, perhaps, able to become prostate cancers.

  7. Age Limit on Prostate Cancer Screening?

    Aug. 5, 2008 -- A U.S. government task force says there is no "adequate proof" that routinely screening men over age 75 for prostate cancer leads to fewer deaths. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force now recommends against routine prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing for men 75 or older who do

  8. Prostate Cancer Therapy: Mental Impact?

    July 29, 2008 -- A treatment most often offered for men in late stages of prostate cancer may affect mental functioning.

  9. Prostate Cancer Therapy May Not Help

    July 8, 2008 -- One in four elderly U.S. men with early prostate cancer undergoes hormone therapy -- but it's more likely to harm than help. Surgery to remove the prostate -- radical prostatectomy -- is too risky for most men in their 70s and 80s. When such men are found to have early prostate cance
