Overview


Patterns of screening, detection and care in prostate cancer (PCa) have changed tremendously in the past few years, altering the way patients with this tumor present and how they are evaluated before and after diagnosis. With the use of new and combined treatments, the frequency and variety of complications have differed from those previously reported. Advances have been made in PCa imaging, biopsy methodology, in understanding causative factors and disease, in treatment-related quality of life, and in predicting the behavior of individual tumors using risk strata. Despite these advances, no consensus has emerged regarding the optimal treatment for the most common patient with PCa.

This activity seeks to educate urologists and other healthcare professionals about the latest advances in the prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of PCa. The International Prostate Cancer Update (IPCU) educational planning committee has identified the following educational gaps between recent research in PCa and its integration into professional practice at the international, national, and community levels:

  • Evaluate the use of biomarkers in prostate cancer detection
  • Compare the use of imaging and other advanced technologies in treating localized prostate cancer
  • Integrating hormonal, cytotoxic and immunotherapeutic agents for advanced and castration-resistant prostate cancer
  • Assess the options for personalizing treatment and sequencing new therapies in individual patients
  • Discuss how to incorporate the treatment of prostate cancer into overall men’s health
