There is no way to prevent it. But if you get checked out regularly, then it can be caught early and treated if it develops at all.
PSA stands for Prostate Specific Antigen. The prostate is constantly renewing itself or growing. At the same time, the body is producing antigens to try to destroy the prostate as if it were a foreign body. The faster the prostate produces new cells, the faster the body produces PSA.. If there is a cancer in the prostate, the cancer cells are prostate cells, but they are produced much faster than normal prostate cells. As a result, when the man has prostate cancer, it can be detected by measuring his PSA. The PSA reading must be compared to the individual's normal PSA reading to know whether he has prostate cancer. When a prostate cancer is being treated, the PSA reading can be compared to earlier PSA readings to determine whether the cancer is receding or growing. A PSA of 6 is rather high and probably indicates there is prostate cancer growth.
The common prostate cancer symptoms are not being able to move your bowels, tired, dizzy, not being able to hold down food in your stomach and not being able to urinate.
No. Not at all the same thing. Definitely not. You can have an enlarged prostate without it being cancerous. You will have very similar symptoms so it's important to check for cancer.
Overview: Prostate Cancer How Many Men Get Prostate Cancer? The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for prostate cancer in the United States are for 2009: * 192,280 new cases of prostate cancer * 27,360 deaths from prostate cancer Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer found in American men, other than skin cancer. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men. Lung cancer is the first. One man in 6 will get prostate cancer during his lifetime, and 1 man in 35 will die of this disease. More than 2 million men in the United States who have had prostate cancer at some point are still alive today. The death rate for prostate cancer is going down, and the disease is being found earlier as well. Last Medical Review: 09/26/2008 Last Revised: 05/05/2009
There are several symptoms associated with prostate cancer. Among those are painful urination, painful erections, or not being able to urinate at all.
With prostate cancer, there are 4 stages to look out for. Stage 1 involves the cancer being found only within the prostate and nowhere else in the body. In stage 2, the cancer is still in the prostate but more advanced. Stage 3 involves the cancer spreading outside the prostate, like the seminal vesicles but nowhere else. In stage 4, the cancer has spread beyond to other tissues, organs, and/or other sites within the body. It is the most advanced stage.
Yes, prostate cancer can kill.Prostate Cancer: Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. It is suggested that prostate cancer kills one man, every 13 minutes, with a worldwide estimates of over 250,000 deaths per year. A study by the National Center for Policy Analysis indicates that over 241,000 American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, in 2011; and it will prove fatal to 34,000 of those who are diagnosed. And there have been studies which indicate that older men, 75 and up will die due to other causes, before prostate cancer kill them.Early testing for prostate specific antigen (PSA) can help detect abnormalities and save lives, by allowing for its early treatment. Hormone therapy is being used in some men, to shrink the cancer cells, but not all prostate cancer cells respond to this therapy. This therapy does not cure the disease. There are hundreds of studies and experiments going on though out the world, in an effort to find a cure for prostate cancer.
Overall, Lung cancer (Carcinoma of lung) is the most common malignant tumour (cancer) in men. Squamous cell type- being the most common type in that (60% of all cases).Carcinoma of prostate (prostate cancer) is the most common cancer in men above 65yrs of age.
There is no evidence showing that the biopsy will spread prostate cancer if cancer is present. And even if it was the case that a biopsy may spread the cancer, the benefits of detecting the cancer far outwieghs the possibility of the cancer being spread around. I mean, finding out that there is cancer means that treatment can commence. By not finding out that you have cancer, it will still eventually spread all on its own anyway.
No. I have never heard of that as being a symptom.
The prostate gland of the male human being is the size of a walnut when it is healthy. If it is bigger than that, your doctor will want to run tests to check for cancer.
She didn't die from cancer. She overdosed on barbituates while being treated for cancer. Death by suicide.

The prostate never stops growing and frequently becomes a problem for men when is begins to obstruct the flow of urine. Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate and can be fairly painful. Can be caused by infection or impact. Prostate cancer is typically a slow growing cancer and most men will get this in their 60s and 70, though prostate cancer is being found in younger and younger men.
Steve Jobs announced to his employees in 2004 that he was being treated for pancreatic cancer.
The prostate has nothing to do with sperm that gets a woman pregnant. That being said, the dose for sterilization is 700cGy to the gonads not the prostate, however prostate treatment is usually to 7000cGy so sterilization is likely. But if this a real concern for you talk to your oncologist and if there is doubt he will run a semenalysis. If you want to father children it is best to freeze some semen before the treatment.

my friend was being treated for cancer in back but she also has cancer in one of her lungs can you tell me if she can be helped
Of course. All cancer is curable, but only if you take care of it at its earliest. If the cancer goes without being treated then it will be harder to get rid of.
A TRUS is a transrectal ultrasonography of the prostate. It is most commonly used to monitor cryotherapy, as well as other forms of therapy, when being used to treat prostate cancer.
children in china are treated with discipline by the time a child turn the age of 16 they are all ready have jobs such as being doctors
As with any illness, enlarged prostate glands can be treated in many different ways. They include being prescribed medicine by a doctor, surgery and even changing your way of life.
John McCain has been treated a total of five times for skin cancer. He has been treated once for Squamous Cell Carcinoma, a common cancer and easily treatable. The other four times have been for Melanoma, a rarer and more dangerous type of cancer. The melanomas were found early and treated. He has shown no signs of being affected by the cancer yet, and it is unlikely that he will.
if you are not the not who is being treated by radioactive iodine, then it is dangerous because it will expose you to radiation..but to the person being treated, its useful..to kill the remaining cancer cells in the body
