RootSports Interview with Rick Griffin about Prostate Cancer [Video]

This interview ran on Root Sports in August 2020. Rick Griffin, former head trainer for the Seattle Mariners, speaks about his prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment options, including proton therapy. Rick was treated at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center – Proton Therapy. Read Rick’s story here: https://www.seattlecca.org/story/former-seattle-mariners-head-athletic-trainer-chose-proton-therapy.Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy that uses beams of protons (tiny particles with a positive charge) to kill tumor cells. This type of treatment can reduce the amount of radiation damage to healthy tissue near a tumor. It is used to treat cancers of the head and neck and organs such as the brain, eye, lung, spine, and prostate. Proton beam radiation is different from standard X-ray radiation.Fred Hutch unites comprehensive care and advanced research to provide the latest cancer treatment options and accelerate discoveries that prevent, treat and defeat cancer and infectious diseases worldwide.

Ask The Doctor: Living With Prostate Cancer [Video]

Though prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in men, most men with prostate cancer do not die of the disease. The prostate is only essential for fertility, and for most men, when they are diagnosed, fertility is no longer a concern. Many men are on active surveillance without immediate treatment of their cancer, and they need close monitoring with examinations, PSA testing, MRIs, and repeat biopsies as determined by their healthcare provider. Men who have undergone curative treatment need routine visits to monitor PSA for cancer recurrence and to manage any complications of the treatments. Afterinitial recovery from surgery or radiation, a man can resume all pre-treatment physical activities. If there are problems with leakage or erectile dysfunction, there are medications, exercises and procedures to get back to your life and daily activities. Men might also want to consider joining a cancer support group.Learn more at zerocancer.org.

Scientists discover new epigenetic markers for prostate cancer [Video]

Scientists at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research have discovered new epigenetic biomarkers to predict more aggressive forms of prostate cancer. The new study is published in the journal, Clinical and Translational Medicine. The biomarkers can be used in combination with traditional clinical tools to predict if a man will go on to develop a more metastatic and lethal form of the disease and could help clinicians to develop a better treatment plan. Prostate cancer is, globally, the second most common cancer diagnosed in men. After diagnosis, about 50 percent of men will develop metastatic cancer during their lifetime. Typically, metastasis takes 15 or more years to develop, but a small percentage of men develop a fatal, metastatic form much earlier after diagnosis.Always First Video brings to you news, and explainers about current issues in India and across the global. our video covers Bollywood, Business, Sports. current affairs news, science & technology, politics, entertainment, viral and more. watch always the first video and stay tuned for all breaking news.

Dr. Clayton Lau, chief, Division of Urology and Urologic Oncology at City of Hope, a leading-edge cancer research and treatment organization, discusses how prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET scans significantly improve prostate cancer detection and treatment. He talks about single-port robotic prostatectomy that improves recovery time and how prostate surgery is increasingly becoming an outpatient procedure with same-day discharge.#CityOfHopeAt City of Hope since 2006, Clayton S. Lau, M.D., specializes in minimally invasive approaches to urologic oncology and reconstructive urology. He has performed over 3,500 robotic and laparoscopic procedures. He has also trained numerous surgeons in robotic surgery throughout the U.S. He is an international expert in robotic surgery and has been invited to lecture and perform robotic surgeries internationally.Dr. Lau is known for the close, professional relationship he establishes with his patients. He goes the extra mile to make sure they know everything they need to know about their urologic malignancy treatment options – and that includes getting a second opinion.“Second opinions are very important for any patient who has been diagnosed with cancer,” he says. “I see about 20 to 30 second opinion patients per month.”
