Prostate Cancer

 

prostate gland cancerSource: Wikipedia

The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system.Prostate cancer develops when cells of the prostate mutate and multiply out of control.

Prostate cancer is first detected through symptoms such as pain, difficulty in urinating, and erectile dysfunction.

Cancer cells maymetastasize from the prostate to other parts of the body, especially the bones and lymph nodes.

According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer develops most frequently in men over fifty, and is least common among Asian men and most common among black men.

Prostate cancer is only second to lung cancer in the male deaths from cancer.

Genetics and diet, are thought to be the most prevalent amongst the many factors leading to the development of prostate cancer.

Diagnosis

Many men who develop prostate cancer never have symptoms, undergo no therapy, and eventually die of other causes.

Prostate cancer is most often discovered by physical examination or by screening blood tests, such as the PSA (prostate specific antigen) test.

NOTE: PSA tests can vary significantly day to day and can skyrocket with other illnesses such as flu.

Suspected prostate cancer is typically confirmed by removing a piece of the prostate (biopsy) and examining it under a microscope. Further tests, such as X-rays and bone scans, may be performed to determine whether prostate cancer has spread.

 

Treatment

In most cases, normal chemotherapy is not effective in prostate cancer treatment. The mainf treatments include:

  • Surgery
  • Hormone Therapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Proton Therapy

In most cases, treatment includes a combination of the above.

Response of the cancer to initial treatment are important in determining the outcome of the disease.
