Doctors do not fully understand what causes prostate cancer. This disease may have an association with alcohol, but scientists need to do more research to confirm the potential link. Here, learn more about the risks of alcohol, how doctors screen for and treat prostate cancer, and the survival rates for this disease.

A panel of experts from the United Kingdom is asking whether regular screening for prostate cancer actually brings enough benefits to outweigh the risks.
Some prostate cancers resist androgen-targeting therapy and continue to spread because the treatment alters the environment of tumor cells, a study shows.
