Mathematical Modeling Identifies Aggressive Prostate Cancer That Needs Treatment
A new approach to mathematical modeling of prostate cancer has made it possible to spot potentially life-threatening tumors among the ones that are less threatening, allowing physicians to selectively offer aggressive treatment to those in need. The findings, published in the journal European Urology Focus, may help reduce the severe side effects of cancer treatment among men whose cancers do not yet need to be treated. "Curative treatment of early prostate cancer by surgery or radiotherapy needs to ideally be targeted to the minority of men with significant cancers, so that the remainder are spared the side effects of treatment, which frequently includes impotence,” Colin Cooper, a professor of cancer ge
