Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the uncontrolled growth of prostate cells in the male reproductive system, causing erectile dysfunction, blood in the urine, and trouble urinating. Early cases usually cause no symptoms but can damage nearby organs. Some tumors can spread to other areas, causing severe bone pain, leg weakness, or paralysis. Most tumors are manageable with active surveillance, radiation therapy, or radical prostatectomy. For those with cancer returning or spreading beyond the prostate, hormone therapy is used. However, castration-resistant prostate cancer requires continued hormone therapy and chemotherapy drug docetaxel. The risk of developing prostate cancer increases with age, with an average diagnosis age of 67.


Prostate cancer is an aging disease with higher risk after age 50, influenced by factors like family history, ethnicity, genetics, diet, obesity, inflammation, and environmental exposure. Early detection and regular screenings enable effective treatment options. Consult a healthcare provider for guidance.


Prostate cancer can cause urination changes, including increased frequency, urgency, weak flow, incomplete emptying, pain, and discomfort, and can also result from non-cancerous conditions. If persistent or worsening, seek medical attention for proper evaluation. Routine screenings, including digital rectal examinations and PSA blood tests, are crucial for early detection, especially for men at higher risk due to age, family history, or other factors. Adequate diagnostic tests and evaluations are performed to determine the cancer’s extent and stage. Early detection and timely intervention are essential for better outcomes in prostate cancer cases.


Prostate cancer diagnosis involves a comprehensive medical history, including symptoms, risk factors, and family history. Digital rectal examinations, PSA tests, and MRIs help healthcare professionals accurately diagnose, stage, and aggressiveness of prostate cancer, ensuring tailored treatment plans.


Regular prostate cancer surveillance and treatment involve PSA tests, DREs, biopsies, and surgical procedures like radical prostatectomy. Immunotherapy and targeted therapy target cancer growth and progression molecules. Treatment decisions depend on individual needs and stage, and a multidisciplinary approach involving urologists, oncologists, and radiation therapists is essential for comprehensive care.
