Il grande inganno sulla prostata

Perché lo screening con il PSA può avere gravi conseguenze per milioni di uomini

Richard J. Ablin, Ronald Piana

editore: Cortina Raffaello

pagine: 250

Edizione italiana a cura di Roberto SatolliOgni anno milioni di uomini si sottopongono a dolorose biopsie per il cancro della prostata e moltissimi subiscono prostatectomie radicali, che spesso danno luogo a conseguenze devastanti come incontinenza, impotenza e trauma psicologico. Ma il fatto sconcertante è che la maggior parte di questi uomini non sarebbe mai morta per questa forma comune di cancro, che spesso cresce così lentamente da non fare danno. Come siamo arrivati a un punto tale, con tutti questi test e interventi chirurgici inutili? Questa è la storia scioccante di come l’uso improprio di un test per il cancro della prostata abbia rovinato sistematicamente la vita di milioni di uomini, derubando il sistema sanitario di risorse preziose, scritta dallo scienziato padre della scoperta che ha portato allo sviluppo del test. Gli AutoriRichard J. Ablin è professore di immunopatologia presso la facoltà di Medicina della University of Arizona. Pioniere nella ricerca sul cancro della prostata e nell’immunoterapia ha scoperto il PSA nel 1970 e per decenni ha lottato contro l’uso improprio della sua scoperta come screening per il cancro della prostata. Ronald Piana è uno scrittore scientifico specializzato in oncologia. Ha pubblicato oltre 250 articoli per diverse riviste scientifiche.

Il tumore alla prostata. Paziente, familiari e medici: esperienze narrate

a cura di L. Bellardita, T. Magnani

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 88

In che modo la diagnosi di tumore alla prostata impatta sull'equilibrio familiare, sulla vita di coppia e sui progetti di vita? Come viene gestita da parte dei clinici, medici e psicologi, la complessità della malattia nel caso del tumore alla prostata? Sono queste alcune tra le domande a cui gli autori hanno cercato di rispondere attraverso un testo strutturato come una serie di "riflessioni", nel duplice significato di "pensiero su" e di immagine riflessa. Uno spaccato sulle emozioni del paziente e sulle relazioni con partner, figli, medico curante, psicologi, che chiude con il punto di vista del paziente che ci racconta la "sua" verità. Una narrazione che vuole portare alla luce gli aspetti psicosociali e le dinamiche interpersonali, talvolta complicate, tra i vari attori che ruotano intorno al paziente con tumore alla prostata.

The Gleason Grading System

A Complete Guide for Pathologist and Clinicians

Jonathan I. Epstein

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 224

"The Gleason Grading System: A Complete Guide for Pathologists and Clinicians" provides exhaustive coverage of the updated "Gleason Grading System", which deals not only with pathology but also with the associated clinical correlations and prognosis. "The Gleason Grading System" is the most important prognostic marker of prostate cancer, which is critical to patient management and drives therapies across all disciplines dealing with prostate cancer. In addition to an extensive number of photographs, this book discusses in detail clinically related issues that are crucial for the urologist, radiotherapist, and oncologist to know, such as predicting upgrading and downgrading from needle biopsy to radical prostatectomy, risk of Gleason grading change over time, significance of tertiary grade patterns, and prognosis and implications related to various Gleason scores and different therapies. Images that were particularly difficult for contributing pathologists sent in for consultation are used in addition to classic examples, as these cases are the most informative in showing the difficulties with Gleason grading. This book is a valuable tool not only for surgical pathologists from the resident level to seasoned practitioners but also for urology residents, urologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists.

Interventional Techniques in Uro-Oncology

Hashim Uddin Ahmed, Manit Arya
e altri

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 208

Minimally invasive surgical techniques are moving into the mainstream of urological practice. Even less invasive techniques, some of which can involve no use of the knife whatsoever, are rapidly being developed and implemented for treating urological cancer. Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology is the first text to cover these techniques in total and provides a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art minimally invasive interventions. This well-illustrated reference provides the basic science behind each technique before explaining when and how best to perform them. It examines their use in different clinical settings, the advantages and disadvantages of each technique in the management of specific tumor types, and their suitability for different patients. Future techniques are discussed including the potential of nanotechnology in the delivery of urologic healthcare. Each chapter is easy to navigate with key points and references. Interventional Techniques in Uro-oncology is an essential reference for training and practicing oncologists, urologists and radiologists as well as the general physician with a keen interest in cancer care.

Prostate Cancer

Hedvig Hricak, Peter Scardino

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 242

Prostate cancer is one of the most common malignancies in men in the Western world. Although a wide range of treatment regimens are available for this disease, there are few evidence-based guidelines for treatment selection. This volume describes the clinical value of imaging for improving not only staging and treatment selection, but also the diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up for patients with prostate cancer. A multidisciplinary disease management approach is critical in this disease. For the radiologist, understanding the pathophysiology, critical clinical issues, and advantages and limitations of different treatments is essential for meaningful interpretation of imaging studies. Similarly, for the practising clinician, understanding the advantages and limitations of imaging modalities and the importance of optimal technique are crucial to the rational use of imaging. This volume serves as a valuable reference for radiologists, urologists, medical and radiation oncologists and all practitioners involved in the management of prostate cancer.

Carcinoma of the Bladder

David MacVicar

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 194

Bladder cancer is a common and dangerous malignancy which is associated with a variety of known and unknown environmental factors. Clinical management and surgical techniques prioritise detection and treatment of early tumours, which form the majority of newly diagnosed cancers. Imaging is central to establishing the presence of more advanced disease, for which a variety of treatment options exist, including radical curative surgery with or without bladder reconstruction, radiation therapy with curative or palliative intent, and systemic or local chemotherapy. Imaging techniques continue to evolve and this volume explores the relevance of CT with multidetector array, MRI, and computer-based reconstructions such as 'virtual cystoscopy' to treatment choices in today's practice. A review of follow-up strategies and the imaging appearances of treated disease is presented, along with descriptions of modern surgical techniques, radiotherapy and chemotherapy regimens.

Carcinoma of the Kidney

Uday Patel

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 256

The last two decades have seen ground-shifting changes in the epidemiology, genetics, diagnosis and management of renal cancer. Advances in diagnosis have led to many tumours being identified at an asymptomatic stage. There have also been parallel advances in treatment, such as nephron sparing procedures and radiologically guided ablative procedures. However, these changes have brought with them dilemmas such as our ability to evaluate the nature and aggressiveness of early stage tumours and how best to identify those patients who will benefit most from early treatment. This practical, clinically-oriented volume focuses on these current diagnostic and clinical challenges, making it relevant to all members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team.
