Abstract

This month there are two mini-reviews on aspects of prostate cancer. The first, from the USA, presents the implications of surgical margin status after radical prostatectomy and the potential role of adjuvant radiation therapy. The second, from the USA and Belgium, discusses the use of hormonal therapy for PSA-only recurrence of prostate cancer after previous local therapy. In the third mini-review, the condition known as hypoactive sexual desire disorder is described, and that it is often ignored or erroneously treated as erectile dysfunction suggests to the authors that education of doctors and patients is required. Finally, there is a mini-review of conventional and alternative methods for providing analgesia in renal colic.
