A study by Geisel School of Medicine researchers has found that New Hampshire is making progress in fighting prostate cancer, reports NHPR.

“New Hampshire doctors are increasingly doing what the medical community recommends: treating high-risk prostate cancer with surgery and radiation, but leaving low-risk cancer alone, and simply monitoring it,” NHPR reports.

“It is frankly such a prevalent disease associated with aging that if a man lives long enough—and if you go looking for a prostate cancer—you’re likely to find it,” Geisel Assistant Professor of Surgery Elias Hyams, the study’s lead author, tells NHPR.
