    Different kinds of prostate cancer?

    atti_editor posted:
    Scientists in the U.K. say there are 5 distinct types of prostate cancer, and they've found a way to distinguish between them. This research could lead to better treatment, because doctors would be able to know which tumors are more likely to grow and spread.


    "This research could be game-changing if the results hold up in larger clinical trials, and could give us better information to guide each man's treatment -- even helping us to choose between treatments for men with aggressive cancers. Ultimately this could mean more effective treatment for the men who need it, helping to save more lives and improve the quality of life for many thousands of men with prostate cancer."


    The article above has some more information on the study and what it may mean for treatment.



    What would this mean in terms of your treatment? Do you think that this is the "game-changer" the article says it may be?
