Cognitive impairment is a brain disorder in which thinking abilities are mildly impaired. Individuals with cognitive impairment are able to function in everyday activities but have difficulty with memory — trouble i,e. remembering the names of people they met recently, remembering the flow of a conversation, and a tendency to misplace things.
Dr. Christian J. Nelson, from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and colleagues reviewed 19 relevant studies of prostate cancer. They found that nearly 47%- 69% of men receiving ADT (Androgen Deprivation Therapy) have developed cognitive impairment. Androgen Deprivation Therapy also known as hormone therapy is mainly used to is to block the level of circulating androgens (male hormones), which can fuel the growth of prostate cancers.
Thus concluding that the patients suffering from prostate cancer and receiving hormone deprivation therapy have a stronger chance of developing Brain disorder.
