A New prostate cancer study from Duke Cancer Institute found a significant increase in prostate cancer risk among men with heart disease. The study, originally designed to test the benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) drug Avodart for the prevention of prostate cancer, found a prostate cancer risk increase of 24% after two years with coronary artery disease. A staggering 74% increased risk was found after four years of heart disease in men.

Dr. David Samadi, robotic prostatectomy surgeon, also shares news of a potential link between a Y chromosome gene and increased risk of heart disease in men. One in five men with this particular gene demonstrated a 50% increase risk of heart disease. Dr. Samadi believes further research could lead to improved heart disease screening. Finally, Dr. Samadi reminds that a healthy lifestyle goes a long way in preventing both prostate cancer and heart disease.

The results of the surgery were astonishing, and after an amazingly short healing process, I had none of the incontinence or impotence that, unfortunately, is too often side effects of old-fashioned surgery...
