MAYWOOD, Il. – Prostate cancer that has spread to the bones can cause pain and fractures.

Loyola University Medical Center is among the first hospitals in Chicago to offer a new targeted radiation treatment that can reduce bone pain and the incidence of fractures – and also extend patients’ lives.

The treatment, recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, is called Xofigo®. A radioactive substance, radium-223, is injected into the patient. Because it is similar to calcium, radium-223 binds to the bone.

Prostate health exercise advice
Approximately one in every two men, above the age of 50, will experience prostate problems, ranging from mild inflammations to enlarged prostates and possibly life-threatening prostate cancer. With a 50% chance of developing prostate health issues, it is crucial that every man, young or old, in good or poor health, considers his lifestyle in terms of prostate health.

A diet rich in organic fruits and vegetables, plant protein (as opposed to animal protein), and omega 3s while limiting refined sugars, red meat, and processed foods is a good start to protecting your prostate health. But diet is only half the battle.

Exercise is a critical factor in maintaining good prostate health over time. According to research led by Dr. Stephen J. Freedland of the Duke University Prostate Center, men who exercised the equivalent of three to six hours of walking per week were less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
