Swedish researchers reported on Friday that even with no treatment, a mere share of men that are diagnosed with premature stage of prostate cancer, give into death.
Calculating the information from a national cancer register, they anticipated that after 10 years, prostate cancer would have killed no more than three percent of these men.
Grace Lu-Yao, a Cancer Researcher, who was not involved in the new study, said that the information that this data is offering is that for the maximum number of patients that run a low risk of cancer, thus, there is no need to get worried about the same.
With current screening tests, said Lu-Yao, of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in New Brunswick, a lot of prostate cancers are seen that might by no means have developed into the grave disease.
In cases like those, the minutest decrease of risk by surgically removing the prostate or treating it with radiation might not overshadow the considerable side effects of these treatments.
Given the general low death risk, the researchers said observant waiting seems to be appropriate for a lot of men with low-risk prostate cancer.
Instead of getting all worried about the scenario, Lu-Yao said that the instance should be taken as wake-up call and rather men should involve themselves in some form of exercise and eat healthy diet.
