Warning Signs Of Prostate Cancer You Shouldn't Ignore

(CTN News) – According to health experts, Prostate Cancer glands are walnut-shaped glands located just below the urinary bladder that produce symptoms such as urgency of urination, Nocturia (waking up more than two times in the night to pass urine), decreased flow, straining to pass urine, and incomplete bladder evacuation.

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately one out of every eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

There is no difference between Benign Enlargement of the Prostate (BPH) or Prostate Cancer in terms of most of the signs and symptoms described above.

A Consultant Urologist at SL Raheja Hospital in Mahim, Dr Anand Utture, told HT Lifestyle, “The risk of developing prostate cancer increases after 65 years of age.

However, it can also occur at younger ages and is more aggressive. Although there are many signs and symptoms of prostate enlargement that are specific to prostate cancer, it is important not to ignore any of them.”

According to him, these symptoms include blood in the urine or semen, as well as pain and soreness in the hips, back, chest, or other bones. There is a possibility that men may experience erectile dysfunction.

When the prostate gland enlarges and exerts pressure on the rectum, one may experience constipation. Furthermore, there will be a decreased appetite, weight loss, and easy fatiguability.

Prostate cancer is more likely to occur in men after 65 years of age. Men with first degree relatives who have cancer, such as fathers and brothers, have a higher prevalence of cancer. As a result, if a person exhibits any of these symptoms, he or she should consult a urologist.”

Dr. Anand Utture concluded that a Urologist can diagnose prostate cancer with simple tests such as the Per Rectal Finger Test Examination (DRC), the blood PSA levels, and the Multiparametric Prostate MRI. Early detection is the key to combating prostate cancer, which is a serious disease.

It is estimated that more than 97 percent of patients with prostate cancer who are diagnosed before it has spread to other parts of the body will live more than five years after diagnosis.

As a result, even though the prostate gland is a small gland, early detection and treatment of prostate can have a significant impact on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.”
