Is There Anything I Can Do To Decrease Your Chances Of Recurrence?

Question: Is there anything I can do to decrease your chances of recurrence?

Answer: It's not clear with the current data available, that you can do something to decrease [your chances]. On the other hand, I will suggest that if you're not eating tomatoes that are cooked, probably you should increase the amount of tomatoes that you eat in your diet.

That's based on the studies conducted in the Mediterranean countries in Europe, for which males that are taking in diets that are high in tomatoes, they have a lesser risk of prostate cancer.

Also, you could increase the amount of watermelon that you eat daily because it has the same compound as cooked tomatoes and apparently appears to decrease the risk.

It's not very clear that selenium and vitamin E are protectors, but we are at the present time studying that in a national study.
