CINCINNATI - A new study suggests aspirin may lower the risk of dying from prostate cancer.
Researchers found patients who took aspirin after receiving radiotherapy or a prostatectomy had a higher survival rate. The correlation was most prominent in patients with high-risk disease.
The study followed about 2,200 men for more than 10 years. Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer among males, and the second-leading cancer killer.
The study is published in this month Journal of Clinical Oncology.
