Medscape Medical News, Sept. 10, 2007, by Zosia Chustecka 

Men with low-risk prostate cancer who opt for active surveillance should be encouraged to make dietary and lifestyle changes that improve their overall quality of life, such as reducing calories and exercising, said Stephen Freedland, MD, from Duke University Medical School, in Durham, North Carolina.

Kaplan from Weill Cornell Medical College, New York said: "We know that there is an increasing relationship between components of the metabolic syndrome and male pelvic health and it is becoming very clear that when you have multiple components of the metabolic syndrome you can bet that you will have components of pelvic dysfunction, which we would define as sexual dysfunction and voiding dysfunction."
