TWO TYPES OF PROSTATE CANCER
New Discovery Could Help Patients Who Need Treatment
NewsChannel5 reports the difference between fast and slow prostate cancer may be signaled by the level of a protein called "P27."
"P27" is abundant in normal prostate S; it acts as a tumor suppresser stopping cancerous cells from growing.
Prostrate cancer affects the level of "P27"--some cancers have near normal levels of the protein while others have low and sometimes undetectable levels.
This discovery could help patients who need aggressive treatment for prostate cancer, get that treatment as early as possible
