"In a large analysis of men participating in a prostate drug trial, researchers at the Duke Cancer Institute found a significant correlation between coronary artery disease and prostate cancer, suggesting the two conditions may have shared causes."
In my case plugged arteries on the heart were found after the PCa ... I had a calcium scan done last year during "Heart Month". If you have had PCa you might want to consider having the heart scan. When I did it last February a local hospital had a "special" and it was only $100. Note - Some docs still consider the calcium scan a not so good diagnostic tool (kind of like PSA for PCa). Its one of those cases of now that I know I have blockage what do I do .... how aggressive do I want to be? Glad I had gone through the PCa before I started down the plugged artery path.
