4 Early Warning Signs of Prostate Cancer
In case you are a man, the federal government estimates that you have about a one-in-seven chance of developing prostate cancer at some point in your life time. Based on 2012 data, almost three million United states men are currently living with prostate cancer. Although the condition is highly treatable, many men are suffering needlessly because they didn’t know the signs of cancer and catch it before it reached an advanced stage of malignancy. Or they didn’t know the causes of prostatic cancer and what to do to avoid it.
Knowing how to identify the early-onset signs and symptoms of prostate malignancy is critical. It could mean the difference between having to undergo unpleasant radiation treatment and surgery (and suffering through a laundry set of side outcomes in the process), or making simple dietary and lifestyle changes now to nip this cancer in the bud and stop it from growing and spreading.
Where is Your current Prostate?
Only men have a prostate, which is a walnut-sized gland located directly under the urinary in front of the rectum. It surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine and sperm out of the body. The prostate gland can affect urine control, known as continence.
