Sara Faithfull explains the correlation between prostate cancer and hip fractures to ecancertv at SIOG 2014. Patients who are successfully treated for prostate cancer could later die to complications from a hip fracture. "Seven percent of the men [with hip fractures] in the database had prostate cancer and were treated for it," she says, suggesting that when patients are placed on androgen deprivation, doctors should follow up for hip fracture screening.

"Age proved to be the most important factor to undergo - or not undergo - chemotherapy," Dr Markopoulos tells ecancertv at SIOG 2014. He discusses the results of a multidisciplinary survey of 900 physicians in 52 countries, examining the interaction between age and breast cancer screening, diagnosis and outcome. The survey seems to indicate that physicians are more reluctant to prescribe chemotherapy to geriatric patients, and that elderly patients require more proof of benefit.

Dr de Glas talks to ecancertv at SIOG 2014 about her research on screening elderly patients for breast cancer. For every advanced stage tumour predicted, many elderly women were overdiagnosed. "In this age group, we should not offer population-based screening, but personalised screening," Dr de Glas says. "Screening can actually harm people, especially in the older age group."
