Prostate cancer, also known as carinocinoma of the prostate, is the development of a cancer cell in the prostate (a gland in the male reproductive system).It usually occurs in men between ages 65 and 75 accompanied by urinary disorders such as the adenoma or blood in the urine. Cases in men under the age of 40 is very rare. However, most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, some grow relatively quickly. The cancer cells may spread from the prostate to other parts of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes. Other factors that may be involved include a diet high in processed meat, red meat, or milk products or low in certain vegetable.
SYMPTOMS OF PROTATE CANCER
Early prostate cancer usually has no clear symptoms. Sometimes, however, it may produce such symptoms as frequent urination, nocturia (increased urination at night), difficulty starting and maintaining a steady stream of urine, hematuria (blood in the urine), and dysuria (painful urination). Prostate cancer is associated with urinary dysfunction as the prostate gland surrounds the prostatic urethra
CAUSES OF PROSTATE CANCER
Prostate cancer is very uncommon in men younger than 45, but becomes more common with advancing age, however can be associated with such factors as obesity, age and family history. Prostate
Genetic background contributes mostly to the risk of prostate cancer
It is observed that some dietary factors such as fruits and vegetables are associated with prostate cancer, however the evidence to support such role not very strong. Higher meat consumption has been associated with a higher risk in some studies
An association with gonorrhea has been found, but a mechanism for this relationship has not been identified, howevr, ssxuelly transmitted diseases can increase the risk of prostate cancer
It has been said that frequent sex such as about 21 times or more in a month can reduce the risk of prostate cancer, however, sex with multiple partner may increase the risk.
