Smoking may be linked to prostate cancer's return

A new study conducted at the University Hospital in Basel Switzerland indicates that smoking doubles the recurrence of prostate cancer after surgery.  According to lead author Dr. Malte Rieken, the study of 7,200 men, followed over a 28-month period shows that "current smokers and patients who had only quit smoking within the previous 10 years were about twice as likely to have their cancer return as those who never smoked."
