Center, M. M., Jemal, A., Lortet-Tieulent, J., Ward, E., Ferlay, J., Brawley, O., & Bray, F. (2012). International variation in prostate cancer incidence and mortality rates. European Urology, 61(6), 1079-1092.
This article gives an illustration on the wide variations that occur internationally for prostate cancer. This information details the different variations involved in the detection, treatment, genetics, and the lifestyle of individuals. The article obtained is from a credible website, and the information provided in this article is credible because it is evidence based. The authors compare studies conducted in various nations across the five continents. The article provides an analysis of recent trends in prostate cancer incidence rates for over 40 countries and examines the mortality rates of over 53 nations since 1985. The article is objective as it presents estimates of incidences and mortality rates across five continents and gives the most recent information obtained from the Agency for Research on Cancer.
The main strength of the article is that it provides information that covers wide geographical regions and provides insight into the reason less developed countries have high mortality rates. However, it does not mention the cause of the increase. It makes an inference that resources affect incidence rates. The article is unbiased and provides evidenced-based information. This article will give the reader a perspective of how the United States stacks up among other countries in terms of detection, and treatment outcomes, which will be valuable to my research paper.
Grady. D. (2016). Prostate cancer study details value of treatment.
Grady Denise in his article seeks to explore and provides significant information to men faced by hard decisions about the way in which prostate cancer is treated, particularly at initial stages. The article presents profound research where Grady illustrates the death rates among men with cancer and examines how effective active monitoring influences death rates. In the article, it is amazing how Grady explains the methods that can be used in the treatment of the prostate cancer.
The source of the article is the New England Journal of Medicine (New York Times). The New England Journal of Medicine is proven to be a credible source. The article provides accurate information emphasizing the value of treatment in prostate cancer, having included case studies done by various doctors in the field. According to the reports by Dr. Scardino, he detail the findings done by monitoring men suffering from the condition. The studies have helped in realizing that active monitoring is a valuable approach for detecting prostate cancer. Grady takes the information from multiple studies and wrights in a way that is easily digestible.
The various research studies done by the doctors on the treatment of cancer forms the main strength of the article. Grady uses the article to provide a vivid explanation about prostate cancer. However, the two main methods, surgery and radiation are still left to be researched There is still much debate among the doctors whether surgery or radiation can be effective in the early treatments. The article does not provide surety as far as these methods are concerned. From the information studied, there is not any bias. Grady has done an incredible job on analysing prostate cancer research that will make using this information valuable for my research paper.
Nordqvist. C. (2016). Prostate Cancer. Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments.
This article by Christian Nordqvist provides an illustration on the prostate cancer outlining how it is classified, the signs and symptoms, the treatment options, and the possible complications associated with the condition. This is a peer-reviewed article that seeks to provide accurate literature on prostate cancer. The source of the article is enclosed in a journal from Medical News Today. Medical News Today is considered credible because they will not publish any information that has not gone through rigorous scrutiny. The author, Christian has used the information contained in this article in the provision of the Gleason score on prostate cancer. The Gleason score is a grading system that classifies the stage and grade of prostate cancer. This points to how critical this information is and why using this source is essential for my research paper.
The main strength of this article is the etiology, classification of the disease, the necessary signs and symptoms, and causation. Another reason this article is fascinating because it point out how critical proper grading of the cancer tumour is. This is essential in the decision making process that goes into what treatment should be recommended for prostate cancer patients. However, the article is not without flaws. One weakness that it does have is how it does not go into detail specifically on any one topic. It only gives a broad overview on each of the topics mentioned before. Besides this one fault, the article does detail the various aspects of prostate cancer compared to the others.
In conclusion, these resources will provide a solid base to begin work on my research paper. I have learned a tremendous amount of information on prostate cancer. The information within is very important to me because my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Luckily, with early detection he was treated, and has a great prognosis moving forward. The articles on details good information, which I can combine to provide wright an informative research paper.
