‐ Apr 18, 2021 12:45pm

Credits: None available.

Developments in the management of all stages of prostate cancer are taking place on a regular basis. New biomarkers and evolving insight into genetic testing are giving guidance in prostate cancer decision making including treatment choices. PET scans have not been widely applied to prostate cancer, but newer agents are making this a more useful imaging approach. Biomarkers, genetics, PET imaging and new medications are the focus of this talk.

Thank you for this information. I would like to hear more regarding the Chek2 gene mutation and follow up recommendations, specifically is somatic genetic testing recommended. I had a father that was positive for prostate cancer at age 60, brother age 44 with prostate cancer. I had for many years been asking if there was a line with breast cancer and for a long time the answer was no. I was diagnosed with Breast cancer in 2020 and found positive for Chek2 mutation and learned this link between the two cancers. I have worked in Urology for many years and had been asking regarding link between this and breast cancer and am glad the link has been made finally. More information would be so helpful.
