Symptoms Prostate Cancer for Identifying Well On Time

PowerPoint Presentation:

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among men over the age of 45. However, it is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer and is curable. It is important to know exactly what to look for if you suspect you may have it. Symptoms prostate cancer produces should be taken seriously as knowing what to look for can result in a life being saved.

Changes in Urination:

Changes in Urination If you have no history of the disease in your family and are unfamiliar with it, you may ask yourself "What is prostate cancer?" The prostate is located beneath the bladder in the lower pelvis. Because of this, prostate cancer comes with a variety of symptoms, the most common being frequent urination. There is also commonly an urgent sensation of having to urinate immediately. A man with prostate cancer will also find himself getting up multiple times to urinate throughout the night.

At the same time, once he is attempting to relieve himself, he will find that there is hesitancy in the stream of urine. These symptoms all come about because of the urethra being pinched closed by the prostate, which is enlarged. It is necessary to note that BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia is the most common condition of an enlarged prostate. This is a condition that does not involve cancer, but at the same time, a doctor should treat it.

Less Common Symptoms:

Less Common Symptoms Other symptoms for prostate cancer can occur in an individual with the disease. These are not the most common issues but should certainly be treated as signs of cancer. Loss of control of the bladder, blood in the urine or in semen, a new instance of erectile dysfunction, also called impotence, and bone pain mostly in the hips, lower back and ribs are symptoms of prostate cancer.

Testing for Prostate Cancer:

Testing for Prostate Cancer All men who are over the age of 45 should visit a doctor at the onset of any of these symptoms. Anyone who has a family history of prostate cancer or cancer in general should also see his doctor. There are a few tests that can be done to determine whether any of the symptoms are indeed a result of prostate cancer. The earlier the disease is detected, the easier it is to treat and eliminate. Many men without symptoms have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. A PSA test, also known as a prostate specific antigen test, involves examining the proteins found in the blood.
