Prostate cancer is also known as the carnicoma of the prostate. The prostate is responsible for a variety of functions - from the synthesis of the male sex hormone (testosterone) to the sensations during orgasm.
Men over 50-60 years usually experience prostate cancer. The probability of developing the prostate cancer increases rapidly after age 50 and the majority of cases is diagnosed among men over 60-65 years old. For younger men the possibility of prostate cancer development is very little. The prognosis for prostate cancer is 5-year survival rate from 70 to 80%. Prostate cancer diagnosis is usually done with the help of tumor marker, that can locate the origin of malignant cells.
The causes of prostate cancer are:
Early signs of prostate cancer include
Other signs of prostate cancer are
I - the tumor was detected during the examination of adenomas
II - neoplasm cells are detected during the biopsy
III - frequent urination, metastases in the pelvic and lymph nodes
IV - the metastases spread to the bones, other organs and form separate tumors.
The early stages
During the local forms of prostate cancer following prostate cancer treatment options are applied:
Ultrasonic ablation of prostate tumors uses a high-intensity ultrasound (HIFU), which is a noninvasive method of treatment. During this treatment for prostate cancer which the ultrasonic beams are focused on a predetermined point.Usually the prostate cancer which is localized (when there are no metastases) can be treated well. Removal of the tumor is possible only for local neoplasms. Modern treatment strategies include prostate cancer surgery, radiation therapy and in rare cases observation, if the person is older than 60.
Prostatectomy is still the leading method of treatment, but as the robotic surgery develops, it may soon become obsolete.
During the 3rd and 4th stages (characterized by the spread of metastases to other organs), the following prostate cancer treatments are applied:
Metastatic forms are treated only symptomatically or palliatively. Hormonal therapy can delay the rapid development of the disease, prevent further complications and alleviate the symptoms, but it does not increase the survival rate.
The studies show that food rich in fat contributes to prostate cancer by 30-40%. The men who include meat, milk, eggs, cheese in their everyday nutrition are under the risk. Vegetarians are a little less likely to get sick. The probability is also increased if the level of vitamin D in the blood is low, It usually happens due to the absence of ultraviolet exposure. Constant consumption of broccoli, cauliflower and other cruciferous vegetables lowers the risk by 40%.
Best prostate cancer treatment centers
The most prominent medical centers can increase the chances for full recovery by several times. Such centers are
These centers are considered the best, as they offer the proton therapy, which can not be performed in simple hospitals, that do not specialize in prostate cancer. They also have such facility as robotic prostatectomy, which is a new word in the medical world. During the robotic prostatectomy, doctors use robotical device to assist them in the operation. Robotic surgery can enhance the skills of surgeons during the operation. This method is very precise and it requires less time.Hide
