This site seems more for the physician, and my own doc advised against too much web browsing on PC, but it's obvious I ignored this advice.

An article today is confusing, I'll copy and paste the text in the hopes that someone here can explain "sporadic pc".



DUSSELDORF, GERMANY (UroToday.com) - In 10,349 patients with prostate cancer (67% sporadic, 24% familial and 8% hereditary), a radical prostatectomy was performed. The 10-year progression-free survival was 49%, 46% and 45%. The 10-year overall survival was 86%, 84% and 80%. The 10-year cancer-specific survival was 93%, 91% and 87%.

The authors concluded that familial and hereditary prostate cancer could be more aggressive compared to sporadic prostate cancer.

GTODave -
I googled sporadic prostate cancer and found some wonderful articles and abstracts ( not the painting variety) in scientific "gobbly-gook"focusing on the genetic nature of this beast we call Prostate Cancer (PRCA) ....
.. so I googled definition of sporadic cancer and found this ....
.. hope it clears it up for you and others here at HW....


non-scientific hugs
