The test displayed an overall high sensitivity for detecting bladder tumors.
Men at high-risk of bladder cancer were the most likely to be referred to urologists.
Study reveals comparable rates of freedom from biochemical failure at 5 years.
RCC tumor shrinkage significantly and independently predicted overall survival.
This effect appears to occur mainly in men who experience recurrence when they are younger than 65 and in those with low-risk cancer.
Neoadjuvant sunitinib was linked to primary tumor and thrombus shrinkage, reduced blood loss during surgery, as well as improved cancer-specific survival.
Study shows that 81% of scrotal ultrasounds for pain demonstrate normal or benign findings.
Pathological stage was the only independent factor linked to kidney cancer progression.
Researchers find rates lower than those observed in most clinical trials.
The approach was defined as surgical resection with a wide margin or radiotherapy with a biologically effective dose of 140 Gy or greater.
Unplanned clinical visits 15 times more likely among patients treated more than 45 days after diagnosis.
In a study, patients who had the procedure had a better 5-year overall survival rate than those who did not (68% vs. 27%).
New finding may inform treatment decisions.
Patients with kidney or ureteral stones larger than 20 mm are 85% more likely be re-treated those those with stones smaller than 10 mm.
In a study of hypogonadal men older than 65, the treatment did not increase the prevalence of thrombotic events.
Biopsies triggered by an abnormal DRE alone were significantly less likely to detect clinically significant prostate cancer than biopsies triggered by an abnormal PSA alone.
Flexible ureteroscopy achieved a stone-free rate nearly twice as high as that achieved with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.
Gleason 9-10 tumors are associated with a greater risk of biochemical and clinical recurrence, but not overall survival.
Researchers report on a study in which survivors were followed up for a median of 14 years.
Patients experienced significant improvements in symptoms and quality of life parameters.
Researchers concluded that margin status is a surrogate for established risk criteria.
A study found that 33.8% of women received anticholinergics compared with 19.4% of men.
Survey of minority men aged 18-25 showed that 57.2% indicated that they or their partner did not use birth control at their last sexual encounter.
Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio could have a prognostic role in localized prostate cancer.
OAB treatment is associated with a decreased risk of falls, study finds.
Greater effects were seen in women with UTI, according to researchers.
Levels of CEA and CA 19-9 were significantly higher in patients with tumor recurrence and/or progression.
