June is Men's Health Awareness Month: Talk to your doctor about your risk of prostate cancer and whether you need screening testsProstate Cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in men..

Posted on 29 June, 2015 at 3:24

Once males get over the age of 40, their prostates grow --it's known as "benign prostate enlargement.The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum.  An enlarged prostate has been linked to a number of metabolic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease but the exact cause is not yet discovered.

There are often  no noticeable symptoms of prostate cancer while it is still in the early stages, making the PSA test a critical screening tool. Screening can help find many prostate cancers early.Screening refers to testing to find a disease such as cancer in people who don’t have symptoms of that disease. Prostate cancer screening consists of two examinations: 

  1.  (PSA),Testing the amount of prostate-specific antigen in a man’s blood. Annual PSA test screening should start at age 50 for the general population, but the right age to start the PSA test depends on the individual's level of risk.

  1. A digital rectal exam (DRE) is a screening test that helps find cancer and other health problems in the lower rectum, pelvis, and lower belly. 
  • During a DRE, the doctor gently inserts a lubricated, gloved finger into the rectum to feel for lumps, soft or hard spots, and other abnormalities; additional tests may be needed if an area of concern is found.
  • No special preparation is needed before a DRE, and you can go back to your usual activities right after.

    The common symptoms include:
    • slow urinary stream or a sudden urge to go to the bathroom.

    In more advanced stages, symptoms may include:
    •  difficult or frequent urination, 
    • blood in the urine or bone pain. 

    The effects of body weight, physical activity, and diet on prostate cancer risk are not clear, but there are things you can do that might lower your risk, such as:

    • Eating at least 2½ cups of a wide variety of vegetables and fruits each day.

    • Being physically active.

    • Staying at a healthy weight.

    Prostate cancer  can often be treated successfully. Prostate cancer treatment includes surgery, chemotherapy, cryotherapy, hormonal therapy, and/or radiation. In some instances, doctors recommend "watchful waiting."

    Health is the first priority of the life so we should care about our health first. We should create awareness among the people to make them healthy and happier. Cancer is a fatal disease but people sometimes show carelessness about this disease.

    I do think that this kind of information should be really shared not only during the Men's Health Awareness Month which is June but I believe it should be discussed each day of every month. This is something really important for me and I am thankful because I was able to read this. I will make sure to make other know about this as well because I do believe that sharing is caring. Some of them might not find this really helpful at all but I don’t think I would care as long as I was able to share it to them. Anyway, I am still in the process of understanding this as deep as I could. I will post another comment just in case I have questions about the information.
