Prostate Cancer treatment in Indiadetailed information

Prostate Cancer The prostate is a gland of men located in middle of the bladder and rectum. As men have only prostate, so prostate cancer is the disease of the man. The main function of Prostate gland is to produce and store fluid which comes out from a mans penis during ejaculation. The urethra tube that carries urine from the bladder to penis is fully encircled by Prostate gland. The enlargement of Prostate causes urination problem of men. Prostate cancer means cells in the Prostate grow uncontrollably and invade the nearby tissues and other parts of the body. The abnormally grown tissues are called tumors. The benign tumors are those tumors which are not life threatening. Only malignant tumors can spread to other parts of the body. Though usually Prostate cancer is slow growing, it has the possibility of quick growth and expansion. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer of men. Types of Prostate Cancer: The types of Prostate cancer are clinically categorized as

Adecarcinomas: It is the most common type of cancer as 95 percent of Prostate cancer reported of this type. It grows in glandular tissue. The types of Prostate cancer include leiomyosarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma. Prostatic Intraepithelial Neoplasia (PIN) : This is an indication of abnormal growth of cells which eventually become malignant. Prostate Carcinoma : It usually develops near the surface of the gland Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) : The abnormal growth of benign prostate cells is called BPH. In BPH, the prostate enlarges and blocks the normal flow of urine.

The abnormal growth of benign prostate cells is called BPH. In BPH, the prostate enlarges and blocks the normal flow of urine.

The invasion of the Prostate cancer happens to fat, tissue, the seminal vesicles, and the neck of the bladder. The other parts that it can invade are lymph nodes of the pelvic, bones of the spine, hip, pelvis and chest. Lungs, liver and adrenal glands are also invaded by Prostate cancer. Symptoms of Prostate Cancer: In the initial stage the symptoms of Prostate cancer may not occur. In case of severe prostate cancers, the symptoms include:

Trouble starting urination Urinating much more frequently than usual The feeling that you can't release all of your urine Pain on urination or ejaculation Blood in your urine or semen Impotency Bone pain

Usually prostate cancer occurs over the age of 45, yet most of the cancer cases reported to 60 ages and above 65. However, young men can also suffer from this cancer. The risk factors signified by physicians are age, ethnicity, genetics and diet. Treatments of Prostate Cancer: Unlike any cancer, the treatment of Prostate cancer depends on the diagnosis results and the stage of the cancer. The diagnosis procedures of Prostate cancer are digital rectal exam (DRE), A PSA (prostate specific antigen) test. Even physicians suggest that every man should have PSA test for prostate screening. If the DRE or PSA shows the abnormality, biopsy is done to the patient. In case of severity of the diseases, tests like CT scans or MRIs are done. The treatments of Prostate cancer are surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, cryosurgery, watchful waiting and follow-up testing. New clues in prostate cancer therapy Two new studies could help men and their doctors better treat prostate cancer. Doctors have struggled for years over how

aggressively to treat prostate cancer, a disease more common than it is fatal, says Stephen Freed land, an author of one of the articles and a clinical instructor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore. A man has a 17% lifetime risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer, for example, but a 3% risk of dying from it. Yet about one in three prostate cancer patients who have surgery eventually show signs of a relapse, according to a study published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Doctors have few reliable ways, however, to determine which of these relapses, detected by PSA tests, will be deadly and which will prove relatively harmless. The article suggests that doctors might be able to combine three measurements to select those who need strong therapy.
