the causes of prostate cancer

the Main risk group for this disease – older men. Aging is accompanied by a change of a hormonal background (in itself it can cause cancer). There is another reason: the accumulation in the body of carcinogenic substances (especially cigarette smokers). The accumulation of these carcinogens, like cadmium, is associated with work in hazardous industries (e.g., welding, batteries, or metals).
It is proved that in the human genome there are sections that prevent the occurrence of prostate cancer. Reducing their activity can also cause malignant neoplasm of the prostate. Not to be discounted, and a genetic predisposition to developing this disease. The cancer can cause chronic inflammatory diseases and precancerous conditions.

Major risk factors for prostate cancer:

  • race (highest incidence in men belonging to the Negroid-Australoid race).
  • Work in enterprises connected with harmful production.
  • Smoking.
  • an Unbalanced diet (food with a high content of animal fats).
  • Genetic predisposition.
  • Age. As a rule, more common in older men.

the Immediate causes of prostate cancer is not identified because this disease for a long time does not manifest itself.

Symptoms of prostate cancer

In the early stages of the disease the symptoms are practically non-existent. The first pain appear in the later stages, with the growth of tumors and dissemination of metastases. The development of symptoms of prostate cancer occurs over several years.

The main feature to detect prostate cancer in its early stages and is improving the level of PSA (prostate specific antigen) in the blood. This sign is alarming and to identify the disease at the stage of precancerous changes.

With the germination of the tumor into the urethra or bladder may develop symptoms such as frequent and difficult urination, urinary incontinence, sudden urges to urinate that are difficult to contain.

With the spread of metastasis growing pains in the extremities (the reason is the compression of spinal cord metastases). With the penetration of metastasis in various organs, violating their normal operation.

In the early diagnosis of prostate cancer preventive measures should play a major role. In this regard, it is very important screening men aged more than 50 years, as well as younger men with existing predisposition to this disease.

prostate cancer Diagnosis

  • finger examination of the prostate by the doctor-urologist it is necessary to start!
  • ultrasound of the prostate.
  • blood test for prostate specific antigen (PSA).
  • Biopsy (sampling of tissue samples for further laboratory tests).
  • Visual inspection of the lymph nodes.
  • blood test for analgin (detection in the blood of this substance occurs when cancer spreads beyond the prostate).
  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and/or computed tomography of the pelvis

If you have symptoms of lesions of other organs, is assigned to the appropriate treatment.

Classification of prostate cancer

in Addition to the classic four stages of cancer, spend classification of prostate cancer, in accordance with the scale of Gleason.

On a scale from 2 to 10 estimate the aggressiveness of the disease.

  • 2-6 – low aggressiveness
  • 7-8 – average aggressiveness
  • 9-10 – high aggressiveness

For specific numbers, use a special table consisting of five sectors with the image of the cells, increasing their degree of malignancy. These images are compared with the biopsy results obtained during laboratory tests. Number of sectors with the image of the most common types of cells summarize. The resulting amount is the number to assess the degree of aggressiveness of a cancer.

Basic methods of treatment of prostate cancer

  • watchful Waiting
    This method is the lack of treatment, while the tumor is strictly demarcated and there is no obvious growth. Used mainly in relation to older men with significant comorbidities. At the same time, the patient is constantly under a doctor's supervision. He regularly needs to undergo diagnostic procedures.
  • radical Prostatectomy
    This method of treatment until recently were quite unpopular because it threatens to urinary incontinence and impotence. Modern surgical techniques allow to avoid such unpleasant consequences. How effective is surgical intervention directly depends on the stage of the disease. If the lymph nodes are not affected, the survival rate within 10 years is about 80%; at later stages – less than 40%.
  • Radiation therapy
    the essence of the method – destruction of cancer cells with radioactive material. One of the techniques – introduction of radioactive substance directly into the tumor. This approach allows to avoid complications arising in conventional radiation therapy.
  • Cryotherapy
    tumor Destruction occurs under the influence of low temperatures. Gives a good effect in combination with hormonal therapy. Gives good results in 75% of patients. Used when other treatments are not effective.
  • surgery using the Da Vinci Robot
    In contrast to the operations carried out with the help of the scalpel, this innovative method is less traumatic, minimizes blood loss, maintains potency and normal urination. When this is not performed the cutting of the abdomen and perineum. Access to the prostate is provided through five small punctures in the lower abdomen. A miniature video camera is projected on the screen is enlarged in 15-20 times the image.
    This intervention can be called filigree (the robot with absolute accuracy repeats the hand movements of the surgeon). After such surgery, patients recover quickly (statement made on the sixth day after the operation).

the choice of strategy of treatment is influenced by patient's age, stage of cancer, the probability of the individual characteristics of the organism. Consult with leading experts.

I want to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. CHRISTIAN GRAH for his extremely attentive attitude towards patients, rare responsiveness, high decency and professionalism. Good luck and health to you, Dr. GRAH!!!
In Apollo I was being treated for lung cancer. Here I was operated on, had chemo, which I already received in Russia, coming to India just for periodic examination. To be treated so I decided, because I believe that the technical equipment of the foreign clinics, better, and with the introduction of drugs our doctors will cope.
With a significant increase in lymph nodes in different places (neck, armpit and groin), I had observed a rise in temperature! I was sweating and lost 6 pounds in a month, while the food I had the same. In the end, my family, seeing as I feel bad, decided to take me to a good diagnostic center - clinic Munich, as these symptoms were just talking about the possibility that I have cancer. In the end, Dr. Lars Grenacher diagnosed me with lymphoma stage 3. I am now undergoing treatment and I'm glad I still have a chance to recover!
