Prostate Cancer: Everything You Need to Know

Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men. At Welling Clinic, every year, we advise more than 5000 patients of prostate cancer and treat them with our specially formulated Immuno-knife Homeopathic Cancer Treatment for Prostate Cancer.

Prostate cancer is a disease that affects men and can be serious or life-threatening. Prostate cancer symptoms vary depending on the stage of the disease. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to see a doctor immediately so they can diagnose your condition and provide treatment options.

There are many treatments for prostate cancer, including surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy (called cytotoxic chemotherapy), immunotherapy (a treatment that stimulates a person’s immune system to fight the disease) and more. What all these treatments have in common is that they work best if the diagnosis was made early enough when it is still confined to just the prostate gland and there are no other symptoms such as bone pain or back pain. The earlier you catch it, the better!

In this post, we will go over everything you need to know about prostate cancer including what it is, how it’s diagnosed, and what treatments are available for different stages of the disease.

What is Prostate Cancer?

Prostate Cancer is a form of cancer that affects men. Prostate cancer occurs when cells in the prostate gland change and grow out of control. In most cases, if it’s found early on, it can be cured but advanced cases may not be curable.

Prostate Cancer: Everything You Need to Know 1

Prostate cancer can occur in any man but is most common in men between the ages of 50 and 70. Prostate cancer usually grows very slowly, so it can take years for symptoms to appear or grow worse.

There are many different types of prostate cancer, their severity depends on where they start and how quickly they spread:

-Localized tumours that remain within the prostate gland *

-Regional tumours which have not yet grown outside the prostate gland or into nearby tissues like lymph nodes *

-Distant metastasis – when tumour cells reach other parts of your body through circulation or via a broken blood vessel *

The only way to know if you have Prostate Cancer is with an examination by your doctor.

Symptoms include frequent urination, difficulty starting to pee or stopping midstream, blood in urine or stool; pain during ejaculation; erectile dysfunction; pelvic pressure/pain caused by an enlarged prostate pressing on nearby nerves and tissues.

Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

Some symptoms of prostate cancer include difficulty urinating, blood in the urine or semen. These symptoms may be caused by conditions other than prostate cancer so it’s important to see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.

Treatment of Prostate cancer

– Prostate Cancer can cause pain and discomfort during ejaculation, erections, bowel movements or while sitting down

– Painful ejaculations are also a symptom of prostatitis which is not related to cancer but if this persists then you should seek medical advice from your doctor.

– Urinary frequency: Sometimes this may be the only symptom of prostate cancer. Men with early-stage tumours in their prostates might have to pee frequently, sometimes up to 20 times a day! This is because more fluid and blood accumulate in the bladder due to less urine being formed by an underactive prostate gland.

– Difficulty urinating: Constantly feeling as if you need to go but can’t make it happen? It could be that your symptoms are caused by an enlarged or inflamed prostate, which causes difficulty emptying out all of the liquid from your bladder while trying to urinate.

Causes of Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common form of male reproductive organ cancer. There are two types of prostate cancers, glandular and non-glandular.

Glandular tumours are more aggressive, spread faster than other forms, and require surgery to remove them completely.

Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer

Non-Glandular prostate tumours grow slower but can still be a concern if they’re not monitored extensively by your physician or specialist. It’s also important to note that some men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) may have an increased risk for developing both types of prostate cancer over time as well.

The causes of prostate cancer can be attributed to a few factors.

– Age – Prostate cancer is more likely the older you get, with about 50% of prostate cancers found in men over 65 years old. Men who have lived past age 80 are at an even higher risk for developing this condition.

– Diet – Research from the University of Southern California suggests that eating foods high in soy or calcium may reduce your risk for developing prostate cancer. Other studies have pointed out a connection between omega-three fatty acids and lower levels of testosterone (which can lead to an increased chance of developing prostate), so be sure to include those in your diet if you’re looking into prevention methods.

Other factors which have been linked to higher risks are certain chemical exposures like pesticides or heavy metals, such as cadmium and mercury.

It’s important not only to know what these factors are but also to try and reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer by eliminating them from your life.

Treatment Of Prostate Cancer 

The treatment for prostate cancer largely depends on the stage of your disease. Early-stage prostate cancers can be treated with minimally invasive treatments like Proton Beam Therapy, which may leave you feeling better than before and have fewer side effects. Some people also consider a “watchful waiting” approach to early cases that are not very aggressive but still require surgery or radiation therapy. In some cases, active surveillance may be recommended if symptoms come back after they disappear again during observation (see below).

In more advanced stages, radical surgical procedures such as robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy offer hope for significant improvements in quality of life through fewer incisions while removing all visible tumours from the body and making room for implantation of negative pressure devices to control the spread of cancer.

In cases where prostate cancer has metastasized or is inoperable, hormone therapy may be an option. Hormone-deprivation therapies can slow down tumour growth and alleviate symptoms like sexual problems that are caused by elevated levels of testosterone. Some patients may also want to consider a “watchful waiting” approach if they still enjoy a relatively high quality of life despite having low PSA levels (see below).

Watchful Waiting:  This strategy entails closely monitoring your condition without undergoing any invasive treatments for as long as possible. Watchful waiting is usually recommended when early treatment might not provide significant benefits, but you have no serious signs or symptoms from your disease yet.

– A prostate cancer diagnosis is often made with a digital rectal exam (DRE) when the doctor feels an enlarged, hard gland in the man’s lower abdomen or groin.

– The PSA test can help determine whether higher levels of this protein are found in a person’s blood and may indicate that he has prostate cancer.

– Prostate biopsies are done to measure the size of the tumour and take samples for testing; they also provide information about how aggressive it is.

The treatment options vary according to factors such as age, severity and stage at diagnosis but include surgery, radiation therapy, hormone treatments like Lupron injections that block testosterone production by interfering with signals from pituitary glands located near the base of the brain, and other medicines like chemotherapy drugs that destroy or slow down cancer cells.

– After treatment to remove prostate tumours, most men will still have erections during sex but they may not last as long; this can sometimes lead to premature ejaculation.

The key is for men of any age who experience these symptoms to get seen by a doctor right away so they can rule out or diagnose prostate problems before complications arise.

– Prostate Cancer Symptoms: Irregular urination patterns (especially increased frequency), need to pee urgently/frequently, difficulty starting a urine stream, dribbling after finishing urinating, blood in the urine (sometimes clear).

– Men with chronic prostatitis should be aware of signs and take appropriate actions early on.

Signs and Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

a man should be aware of, to check for early signs of cancer.

– A sudden urge to urinate more often or urgently, especially at night

– Blood in the urine or semen

– Difficulty starting urination (hesitancy)

– Painful ejaculation

– Erectile dysfunction. Prostate enlargement is a common symptom of benign prostate hyperplasia and as such may not be associated with cancer; however it can also signal an early stage of prostate cancer. Men who experience these symptoms should consult their doctor. Early detection increases the chance for successful treatment.

How To Prevent Prostate Cancer?

– Stop smoking

– Eat less fat and cholesterol

– Limit alcohol consumption to one drink per day or less

– Reduce stress in your life. It is not a cure, but it can help you manage the disease by eating healthy foods, exercising regularly and avoiding tobacco smoke.

A large study found that men who reported being stressed had twice as many prostate cancers detected during screening (compared with those reporting low levels of stress). Men are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer when they have high blood pressure or other risk factors like diabetes. Though these changes don’t cause cancer themselves, they may make symptoms show up earlier on scans so doctors find them sooner. This could mean spotting tumours before they become dangerous—or finding smaller tumours that don’t need to be treated.

– Maintain a healthy weight

– Limit red meat, avoid processed meats and dairy products high in fat or calories

– Get enough calcium and vitamin D

– Limit alcohol consumption to one drink per day or less

– Reduce stress in your life. It is not a cure, but it can help you manage the disease by eating healthy foods, exercising regularly and avoiding tobacco smoke.

Why is Prostate Cancer a Silent Killer?

Prostate cancer can be a silent killer because of a number of reasons. One reason is that it can grow slowly, so the symptoms don’t show up for years and by then cancer may have spread throughout the body.

Another thing to know about prostate cancer is that it’s generally not detected until an advanced stage when it’s too late to do anything about it.

There are many other causes as well but those are just two examples.

The best way to detect this type of cancer is through annual exams which include checking for changes in size or texture on the gland that houses the male reproductive organ (the Prostate) since these are signs of potential problems. For those at high risk, you may want to consider getting screened every six months instead of annually as well.

What Are The 4 Stages of Prostate Cancer

The 4 stages of prostate cancer are:

  • Stage 0: In Stage 0 where the prostate cells have not begun to divide and grow, an individual will not experience any symptoms or show warning signs such as pain or discharge from their penis (this discharge may be thin, watery, bloody). This means that those who are diagnosed with this stage although they will need regular routine monitoring due to these early stages do not carry lot of risk for metastasis.
  • To diagnose someone with Stage 0 it’s necessary for doctors to perform a prostate biopsy and it’s usually conducted when someone has an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA), or other risk factors.
  • Stage I: In Stage I, where the cancerous cells have not begun to divide and grow outside of the prostate gland but there is a low chance that they will travel out from this area, one may experience symptoms like trouble urinating; blood in urine, semen, or stool; pain during ejaculation; difficulty getting sexually aroused or achieving orgasm. If you’re diagnosed with this stage then monitoring is necessary because sometimes men who are diagnosed at Stage IIA can experience metastasis to their lymph nodes or nearby organs such as bladder or rectum.
  • Stage IIA: Prostate Cancer at Stage IIA is confined to the prostate gland and can either remain in this location or may spread into nearby tissue.
  • Stage IIB: Prostate Cancer at Stage IIB has begun to grow outside of the prostate but remains localized within the pelvis, including any growth into seminal vesicles (the glands that secrete fluid for semen), rectum, bladder, sphincter muscles near the anus or lower urethra which connects with your penis).
  • – Stage IIIA: Prostate Cancer at stage IIIA is found on both sides of the pelvic bone which means it’s grown through those bones) without having metastasized. Prostate Cancer at stage IIIA has not yet reached these areas, but it might have started to grow in them. This stage can only be confirmed by an MRI scan of the prostate gland after a needle biopsy done for staging purposes indicates a higher risk score than expected.
  • -Stage IIIB: Prostate Cancer at stage IIIB has metastasized to both pelvic lymph nodes and either the seminal vesicle or bladder. A tumour may be detected on a rectal exam, but this diagnosis is often made when dealing with testicular cancer that has spread there first. The vast majority of prostate cancers are stage I or II, with a small percentage being Stage III;
  • -Stage IV: Prostate Cancer at Stage IV is considered very advanced. It has metastasized to distant sites such as the bones, brain and/or lungs.”

Best Treatment For Prostate Cancer in Early Stages

The best treatment of prostate cancer in the early stage is Immuno-knife Homeopathy treatment from Welling Clinics.

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be used, but often lead to side effects without providing any additional benefit. If you are diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer, your doctor may need to remove your entire prostate gland (radical prostatectomy) or part of it (cystectomy). These treatments provide a better prognosis than chemotherapy because they allow doctors to remove all traces of the tumour and greatly reduce the chances of recurrence.***

What Is The Life Expectancy of Someone With Prostate Cancer?

The life expectancy of someone with prostate cancer varies depending on the severity of a person’s diagnosis, what stage they are at and how well they respond to treatment.

– The five-year survival rate for early-stage patients is 98%. For late stages, it falls to about 16%.

– It has been estimated that 85% of all men who die from prostate cancer have metastatic disease (spread beyond the gland) which means their mortality risk is linked primarily to the aggressiveness rather than location or grade of the tumour.

– Prostate cancer can spread throughout the body by bone, lymph nodes, lungs/liver, the brain via blood vessels; in addition, entire parts of some organs like testicles may be removed during surgery leaving nothing but scar tissue behind.

What Is The Most Accurate Test For Prostate Cancer?

The most accurate test for prostate cancer is a PSA test. The simplest and most common way to detect the disease, this blood test measures levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) in your blood. A high level can be an indication of prostate cancer or other diseases that affect the male reproductive system like prostatitis, urinary tract infection, enlarged Prostate gland or non-cancerous conditions such as benign hyperplasia or inflammation.

It’s important not to mistake high levels with normal ones because they are very different and should have separate treatment plans set up by doctors accordingly:

Normal range – 0 – 13 nanograms/milliliter

High Level – 14 ng/mL

Abnormally Low Range under four ng/ml may indicate prostate cancer or other health conditions.

Noninvasive diagnostic tests are often recommended in cases with atypical findings on DRE exam (Digital Rectal Examination) and elevated PSAs before biopsy if the physician suspects any kind of cancer.

What Is The Difference Between Prostate Enlargement And Prostate Cancer?

The main difference between prostate enlargement and prostate cancer is that one can be benign or malignant, while the other cannot. Prostate enlargement is a natural process where the prostate gland becomes enlarged as it fills with fluids in order to maintain an erection during sex. On the other hand, if there are abnormal cells in your body that grow uncontrolled then this will result in prostatic cancer – most often seen when these cells develop into a tumour at high speed since they do not have any limitations within their growth cycle.

– Prostate enlargement symptoms can be difficult to distinguish from other prostate problems.
