In Older Men With Prostate Cancer, Depression Linked To More Aggressive Disease.

Reuters (7/18, Lehman) reports that research published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology suggests that depression in older men prior to a diagnosis of prostate cancer may be linked to more aggressive cancer, a lower likelihood of receiving recommended treatments, and a higher risk of death. Investigators came to this conclusion after analyzing data on more than 40,000 patients with localized prostate cancer.
