Prostate cancer deaths overtake breast cancer

The number of men dying from prostate cancer has overtaken female deaths from breast cancer for the first time in the UK, figures show.

An ageing population means more men are developing and dying from the disease.

Prostate Cancer UK says advances in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer are paying off, and increased funding could benefit prostate cancer.

The biggest cancer killers in the UK remain lung and bowel cancer, with prostate now in third place.

The latest figures from 2015 show there were 11,819 deaths from prostate cancer compared with 11,442 from breast cancer.

Although deaths from prostate cancer have been rising over the past 10 years or so, the mortality rate or the proportion of men dying from the disease has fallen – by 6% – between 2010 and 2015.

For breast cancer the mortality rate has come down by 10%, meaning deaths in women are declining more quickly.

Gary Pettit was 43 when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, five years ago, after a routine medical through work.

He had no symptoms – only an abnormally high PSA (prostate-specific antigen) blood test, which led to further tests and biopsies.

Within weeks, he had a seven-hour operation at the Royal Marsden in London to remove the cancer.

“I’m a lucky boy. I stored my sperm before the op and now we’ve got a little seven-month-old miracle baby, called Teddy. I can’t say how lucky I’ve been.”

Gary says recovering from the surgery took quite a while and there were some side-effects which he is still getting used to – but he is clear of cancer and keen to raise awareness among other men.

“It is still a taboo subject with men. They get shy and embarrassed, but it’s so important to get checked out.”

‘Tremendous progress’

Angela Culhane, chief executive of the charity Prostate Cancer UK, said the disease currently received half the funding and half the research that is devoted to breast cancer.

She said developing better diagnostic tests that could be used as part of a nationwide screening programme would be a priority.

At present, there is no single, reliable test for prostate cancer – the PSA test, biopsies and physical examinations are all used.

Men with prostate cancer can also live for decades without symptoms or needing treatment because the disease often progresses very slowly.

What are the symptoms?

There can be few symptoms of prostate cancer in the early stages, and because of its location most symptoms are linked to urination:

  • needing to urinate more often, especially at night
  • needing to run to the toilet
  • difficulty in starting to urinate
  • weak urine flow or taking a long time while urinating
  • feeling your bladder has not emptied fully

Men with male relatives who have had prostate cancer, black men and men over 50 are at higher risk of getting the disease.

Ms Culhane said: “It’s incredibly encouraging to see the tremendous progress that has been made in breast cancer over recent years.

“The introduction of precision medicine, a screening programme and a weighty research boost has no doubt played an important role in reducing the number of women who die from the disease.

“The good news is that many of these developments could be applied to prostate cancer and we’re confident that with the right funding, we can dramatically reduce deaths within the next decade.”

Living longer

Michael Chapman, director of information and involvement at Cancer Research UK, said: “The number of men getting and dying from prostate cancer is increasing mostly because of population growth and because we are living longer.

“We’re dedicated to improving diagnosis and treatments for all cancers which is why we’re investing in research to help develop more treatments to give more people more time this World Cancer Day on Sunday.”

Khlo Kardashian Shares A Throwback Pic To Reflect On When She Was ‘Unhealthy Mentally’ & ‘Physically’

The pregnant reality TV personality wrote:

“Sometimes it’s hard for me to post these transformation posts only because I can’t imagine my life being this unhealthy again. Never would I ever consider myself fat, But I would consider myself unhealthy mentally/physically and not knowing my true value. Mind, body and soul.”

While KoKo’s outside appearance has visibly changed, she believes any positive transformation begins from within.

“For me, my transformation journey started from within. I needed to heal myself from the inside out. Once I started putting myself first, everything started falling into place. My life transformed a few years ago when I made the decision to stop existing and start living. I decided when I was ready regardless of what anybody else was saying about me. Regardless of the pressures. I had to do this on my terms or I knew it wouldn’t last. It’s ok to take the control back. Choose your life. Don’t let anybody else decide for you!”

Ultimately, if Khloé can do it, you can too!

“Never be afraid to put yourself first! Never choose comfort over your own well-being! Never forget that fate loves the fearless! Today’s wisdom was yesterday’s pain. Tomorrow’s happiness is today’s bravery! I am so proud of myself for being stronger than I’ve ever been-mind body and soul. I am even prouder of myself that I’ve been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle for so many years. I broke that cycle and I’m happier than I have ever been! You can do this!! Start from within and nothing can stop you. Elevate yourself- mind body and soul.”

If this doesn’t get people to tune into her E! show, we don’t know what will!!

Kanye West FaceTimed With A Dying Fan And Didn’t Tell Anyone About It

The next time you hear someone refer to

And it wasn’t for the story either. The reason we’re only hearing about it nearly a week later is because a family acquaintance shared on Twitter — Kanye never did.

Get more deets (below):

Before you cynics out there dismiss the story, Kim Kardashian West actually confirmed it a few days later, tweeting:

Afterward TMZ looked into the story and found out, sadly, the young girl died just hours after getting her wish.

The song? I Love Kanye, off of The Life Of Pablo.

Lilly Uses Horny Goat Weed to Fend Off Cialis Royalty Demands

Eli Lilly & Co. told a federal jury that a German company is trying to take credit for centuries-old Chinese medicine in seeking royalties on the use of its erectile-dysfunction drug Cialis to treat an enlarged prostate.

Erfindergemeinschaft UroPep GbR, a company founded by researchers from Hannover Medical School, claims it’s entitled to royalties from Lilly’s sale of Cialis based on a patent for prostate treatment. UroPep is seeking $84.3 million, or 12 percent of the $704 million in Cialis sales since 2011 that relate to its use in treating benign prostatic hyperplasia, also known as BPH.

“We offered to give Eli Lilly permission” to use the patented invention, UroPep lawyer John Hughes of Bartlit Beck in Denver told a federal jury in Marshall, Texas. “Their response: silence.”

Lilly said the patent didn’t cover anything new — and pointed to Chinese home remedies including one known as Horny Goat Weed, which it said is used both for erectile dysfunction and to treat BPH. It’s not the first time Lilly has brought up the herb — it was used to successfully invalidate part of a Pfizer Inc. patent for the rival impotence drug Viagra.

“UroPep filed a patent with nothing more than an idea,” Lilly lawyer Todd Vare of Barnes & Thornburg in Indianapolis told the jury. The idea “is well-known and obvious throughout the world.”

The drug, more commonly prescribed for erectile dysfunction, generated almost $2.5 billion last year, more than 11 percent of the Indianapolis-based company’s revenue. It’s Lilly’s second-biggest seller, behind the insulin Humalog, used to treat diabetes. Hughes told the jury that UroPep was not seeking royalties on any sales of Cialis for impotence.

The UroPep patent, issued in the U.S. in 2014, is for the use of a class of compounds to treat certain prostate diseases, including BPH. Lilly contends the patent doesn’t cover the specific active ingredient in Cialis, called tadalafil.

Cialis was approved by U.S. regulators to treat erectile dysfunction in 2008 and in December 2010 Lilly asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to also approve Cialis for treatment of the signs and symptoms of BPH.

After Lilly got approval, one of the UroPep inventors emailed Lilly to inform it of the then-pending patent application. Lilly didn’t respond to requests for licensing talks, UroPep contends.

This isn’t the only case in which Lilly is trying to fend off royalty demands from Cialis. The drugmaker is working to invalidate a patent owned by Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute for a method of arresting penile fibrosis.

Presiding over the trial is Circuit Judge William Bryson, who occasionally handles district court cases but normally sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, which handles all patent appeals. While neither Lilly nor UroPep are based in Texas, the case was filed there because the court is the most popular for patent litigation.

The jury is expected to begin deliberations by Friday.

The case is Erfindergemeinschaft UroPep GbR v. Eli Lilly & Co., 15cv1202, U.S, District Court for the Eastern District of Texas (Marshall).

what causes enlarged prostate

So, just what is an enlarged prostate gland? Well, it is important to stress that an enlarged prostate does not necessarily scream prostate cancer. But boy can the whole ordeal by uncomfortable. Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or an enlarged prostate gland, is an condition that usually manifest itself in man over the age of forty and just might be the most common medical problem facing men over sixty.

Symptoms of An Enlarged Prostate

The actual cause of enlarged prostate joins the cure for the common cold as one of medicine's greatest mystery, but if you've got one, chances are you don't have to be Jessica Fletcher to figure it out. A normal prostate gland is about the size of those walnuts that the fancy airlines like to substitute in place of the traditionally cliche plane peanut, as the prostate grows it will generally begin to squeeze the urethra-it then in turn narrows. The bladder then feels compelled to push urine through the newly slimmed down urethra more forcefully-this will result in the urge to make more frequent trips to the Little Boy's Room. As the problem progresses, the bladder may get just a little perturbed at having to do extra credit and ultimately may not be able to completely empty itself. And when the bladder get really peeved, prostate patients may find themselves with acute urinary retention, a complete shutdown of urination. It is a serious condition which should be followed by an immediate trip to the nearest healthcare facility.

Some of the enlarged prostate symptoms to keep your eyes peeled for include:

· Leaking of urine

· The inability to empty the bladder

· Frequent trips to the bathroom-especially at bedtime

· Difficulty starting urination

What is an enlarged prostate sign of danger? It's time to head to a doctor if you lose the ability to urinate, begin to experience nausea, fever, and chills, or if lower back pain becomes accompanied by blood in the urine-none of which are good signs.
