Men with family history of prostate cancer accurately predict higher risk, UMHS study finds

sive Cancer Center.

Further, Beebe-Dimmer notes, herbal supplements are not monitored by the FDA, leaving open the question of exactly how much of a substance someone actually gets from taking it. Supplement use can also interfere with some medications, so it's important to tell your doctor about any CAMs.

Despite the possible risks, the study authors say the use of CAMs by men at high risk of prostate cancer indicates that these men are actively seeking ways to prevent the disease.

To prevent prostate cancer, doctors recommend a healthy diet low in saturated fats and high in fruits and vegetables and regular physical activity. In addition, men should receive an annual PSA screening beginning at age 50, or at age 40 for men at high risk.

In addition to Cooney, Beebe-Dimmer and Wood, authors on both studies include Stephen B. Gruber, M.D., Ph.D., from the U-M departments of Internal Medicine, Human Genetics and Epidemiology and Kimberly A. Zuhlke from the U-M Department of Internal Medicine. Additional authors on the Cancer paper are Doug M. Chilson and Gina B. Claeys, both from Internal Medicine. Additional authors on the Urology paper are Julie A. Douglas, Ph.D., Department of Human Genetics, and Joseph D. Bonner, Caroline Mohai and Cassandra Shepherd, all from Internal Medicine.
