Prostate cancer treatment as the name shows is a treatment for a disease which affects men only and is among the most common forms of cancer in men. A treatment for prostate cancer can be a very complex process and it can involve a combination of multiple therapies like: active surveillance, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, cryosurgery, etc.
Before starting a prostate cancer treatment it is important to know the stage of the disease and the tumor’s size. This information helps the physician in establishing the right form of therapy and prognosis.
Age and genetics are between the primary factors of this form of cancer but nobody can establish the exact causes. Unfortunately there are no symptoms in the early stages of prostate cancer and most men find out about it through a routine consultation or check-up.
Some of the symptoms (when they exist) are:
• The patient needs to urinate more often (also during the night);
• Difficulties to start urinating;
• Pain or mild pain at urination;
• Blood presence in urine;
• Difficulties in achieving or maintaining an ejaculation.
Prostate cancer usually affects men over the age of 50. A prostate cancer treatment is recommended for any patient that was diagnosed with cancer or with cancer tissue detected. The form of therapy will be different depending on the diagnosis.
