Doctor's advice:know what prostate cancer is.
« on: December 02, 2012, 03:44:13 PM »
Prostate cancer is a cancer that starts in the prostate gland.The prostate is a small,walnut-sized structure that makes up part of a man's reproductive system.It wraps around the urethra,the tube that carries urine out of the body.
SYMPTOMS:Thanks to PSA testing,most prostate cancers are now found before they cause symtoms.Although most of the symptoms listed below can occur with prostate cancer,they are more likely to be associated with noncancerous conditions.
  Urinary hesitancy(delayed or slow start of urinary stream)
  Urinary dribbling,especially immediately after urinating
 Pain with urination
 Pain with ejaculation
 Lower back pain
 Pain with bowel movement

Other symptoms that may occurwith this disease:
Excessive urination at night
Urinary leakage(incontinence)
Bone pain or tenderness
Blood in the urine(hematuria)
Abdomimal pain
Low red blood cell count(anemia)
Unitentional weght loss
The cause of prostate cancer is unknown.Some studies have shown a relationship between high dietary FAT intake and increased TESTOSTERONE levels.There is no known association with an enlarged prostate or BENIGN PROSTATE HYPERPLASIA(BPH)
