Do Not Ignore – Every Man Has to Read This
Did you know prostate cancer is the deadliest male disease?
This can be treated if seen in time, so recognize some signs and increase survival rates.
In most cases, this affects gland cells and is called adenocarcinoma.
This disease develops slow. A lot of men die of old age and never knew they had prostate cancer, the autopsy showed this and even doctors did not see it. some studies have showed that even 80% of men in 80s have this cancer, undiscovered.
This cancer starts with changes in shape or size of the prostate glands or prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia PIN.
Even 50% of 50 year old men have the PIN and the cells are in place, are not moved and just a microscope sees the changes. The cancer cells move into other parts in prostate as well. Doctors say the cell changes are either low grade or high grade. Latter is abnormal and first one is fine…
Any man with high grade PIN after a biopsy is at great risk for cancer. Due to this, there might be a need for another biopsy.
In the early stages of this cancer there are no signs. Most men find they have cancer after a routine check and blood test too. When there are signs, they are:
- Often urinating
- Getting up at night for urinating
- Hard start in urine flow
- Hard urinating once it starts
- Blood in urine
- Pain during urination
- Pain in ejaculation (less common)
- Hard time keeping an erection (less common)
If the cancer is advanced the signs are:
- Bone pain in spine, vertebrae, pelvis, ribs
- Proximal femur part hurts
- Weak legs if cancer spread in spine and spinal cord
- Urinary incontinence
- Fecal incontinence
- Agent orange
