Research: Prostate cancer treatment increases risk of blood clots

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- New research on more than 75,000 prostate cancer patients concludes men who receive a common treatment for prostate cancer have a higher risk of a potentially life-threatening blood clot.

Research shows men with prostate cancer were significantly more likely to develop blood clots than men without the disease.

Plus, patients undergoing hormone treatment for their cancer were more than two times as likely to develop a blood clot than the general population.
