Use of computed tomography and bone scans in low-risk prostate cancer cases has been in decline, but doctors continue to order these imaging modalities despite professional guidelines that do not recommend such use.
Among men with high-risk prostate cancer, delaying radical prostatectomy for up to 12 months is not associated with an increased risk for adverse pathology at the time of surgery compared with those who undergo immediate RP, a study found.
Patients who received BCG induction within 3 weeks or 3 weeks or more after surgery for nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer did not differ in their rates of BCG intolerance and recurrence- and progression-free survival, a study found.
Patients with nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer who received intravesical chemotherapy after transurethral resection of bladder tumor had a significantly lower 30-day complication rate compared with those who did not receive intravesical chemotherapy.
Many patients with PI-RADS 5 lesions on multiparametric MRI scans, which indicates a very high likelihood of clinically significant prostate cancer, have negative findings on standard template biopsy, investigators reported.
