Peyronie's news and DISC trial

A recent study has shown that men with Peyronie's Disease may be at higher risk of developing certain cancers. This is not good of course, but at least if we know about it, those men can be monitored for early signs and treated as soon as necessary.
Our trustee Birgir Gislason has done a post about it on his website.
It is not really surprising, seeing having Dupuytren's Contracture has also been linked to an increased risk, in a study by Zyluk (2015)
So make sure you talk to your GP if you notice anything that might be suspicious in your body!

On a more positive note the DISC trial is starting, where the longterm results of surgery and collagenase injections for Dupuytren's will be compared.
Anyone interested in participating please discuss this with your doctor.
