HIV and PSA
Dec 17, 2005
In an older patient, can the immune activation caused by HIV infection, cause a speedier development of prostate cancer or a more aggressive form? Is there a relationship between HIV and cancer? thanks.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
I am not aware of any data to suggest that HIV hastens the development or aggressiveness of prostate cancer.
