Prostate cancer

The prostate is a gland located below the bladder in men, is related to the male reproductive, sexual and urinary function.
Prostate cancer is the abnormal growth of prostate gland cells that also have the ability to invade other organs.

 
  • Problems urinating, such as pain, difficulty starting or stopping the flow of urine or dribbling, increased urinary frequency, getting up at night often to urinate.
  • Pain in the back side of the back.
  • Pain when ejaculating
 

Researchers do not know exactly what causes prostate cancer. However, researchers have found some risk factors and have made progress in understanding how these factors cause the cells of the prostate gland to turn into cancer.

 
  • The factors that determine the risk of developing this disease in a clinical way are not well known, however, some have been identified, of which the hereditary factor, that is having a history of prostate cancer in a direct relative seems the most important; followed by age, race among others.
 
Mainly it is the metastasis, either to the colon, bladder and bone.

For diagnosis, a clinical checkup is recommended starting at 40 years of age that includes a clinical urological consultation and laboratory studies such as the serum value of prostate-specific antigen. If the results are abnormal, you may need other tests such as an ultrasound, an MRI, or a biopsy.
 

The treatment of prostate cancer usually depends on the stage of the cancer. These options may include only careful observation and medical monitoring without treatment, surgery, radiotherapy, hormone therapy and chemotherapy. It can also be a combination of these.
