Prostate cancer is treated in a number of ways, but the more extreme treatments which include surgical interventions may cause physical and psychological side effects.

AA plus leuprolide improved biochemical recurrence-free survival relative to leuprolide alone regardless of pretreatment PSA level, Gleason score, pathology, time to relapse from treatment, and definitive treatment type. Researchers looked at the ability of three different blood tests looking for free-floating DNA to detect cancer. More excitingly, it identified up to 50 per cent of early-stage tumours too.
