Laconia Harley Davidson to Raise $$ for NH Prostate Cancer Fight
Laconia Harley-Davidson announced a month-long collaborative effort to raise funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer research and men's mental health challenges. Laconia Harley is participating in the Movember Foundation's month-long mustache-growing campaign and partnering with the New Hampshire Prostate Cancer Coalition (NHPCC) to raise critical funds to support prostate cancer research and education. Prostate Cancer affects one in six men and approximately one man in thirty-six will die of this disease. The campaign will formally begin at a Shave the Date event on November 2nd from 12-2pm at the iconic Laconia Harley-Davidson dealership in Meredith, NH. Learn more about the effort at

Prostate Cancer Screening - Simplified
2 new tests to consider
By Amanda First
Results from PSA (prostate-specific antigen) tests often raise more questions than they answer. But two new tests may help by providing key clues that the PSA test alone can't, such as whether a biopsy is warranted or how aggressive a patient's cancer might be. This is important because biopsies and cancer treatments, such as radiation and surgery, should be avoided unless absolutely necessary, as they come with some real risks, including bleeding, infection, incontinence, and erectile dysfunction, says J. Stuart Wolf Jr., MD, urology professor at the University of Michigan.

NHPCC Research Donation Drives Innovation in Prostate Cancer Diagnosis
Seed funding aims to improve prostate cancer diagnoses...
For men with prostate cancer, getting an accurate diagnosis can mean the difference between having their prostate removed and choosing a less aggressive treatment option. But often it's difficult to know just how serious a particular prostate cancer is because biopsies can be misleading, suggesting that a cancer is more or less aggressive than it really is.
Biomedical Engineer Ryan Halter, Ph.D.
"In an estimated 30-to-60% of cases, there is a lack of agreement between the cancer grade identified through biopsy and that found in the prostate once it is removed following surgery," explains Ryan Halter, Ph.D., a biomedical engineer at Dartmouth's Thayer School and an adjunct assistant professor of surgery at Geisel. "Sometimes the prediction is right on. Sometimes it's not."
