Jay Ciezki, MD, Department of Radiation Oncology, Cleveland Clinic, discusses an analysis of patients with various malignancies who commonly presented with advanced disease.

In clinical practice, Ciezki says he has noticed more patients presenting with advanced disease over the last 2 to 3 years. To gain a deeper understanding of this occurrence, Ciezki and other researchers examined a 20-year database of patients and the stage they presented with.

As a result of the query, Ciezki concluded that more patients presented with advanced stage disease in the last 2 to 3 years compared with patient visits from earlier years. The tumor type that was found to be most commonly presented as advanced was prostate cancer. This is interesting, Ciezki says, because prostate cancer is very screenable, treatable, and curable.
