Prostate Cancer Treatment Expert Dr. David Samadi, MD Discusses Study Which Found That Low-Income Men Had High-Risk Prostate Cancer Tumors
Date:10/5/2010

NEW YORK, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a report from San Francisco General Hospital, low-income men are more likely to have advanced prostate cancer compared to their financially secure peers. "As of right now, the reason behind this statistic is not because of a lack of access to quality medical care since many of the study's patients had had routine prostate cancer screening," said Dr. David Samadi, Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, a urologic oncologist specializing in prostate cancer treatment and robotic surgery using the da Vinci surgical system.

Racial differences in the low-income group do not account for the disparity, despite the fact that the hospital had a large percentage of African-Americans in their study group. African-American men are typically at a higher risk of prostate cancer than other racial groups. Researchers of the study from this publicly funded "safety net" hospital, which sees mostly low-income and uninsured patients, believes many factors are contributing to the elevated number of high-risk prostate cancer cases. Risk factors such as obesity, diet or environmental issues might also be playing a part even though science has not completely determined a true link between these issues and prostate cancer. "What is at work here is some unidentified genetic factor that is affecting prostate cancer progression in this specific group," said Dr. Sam
