Prostate Cancer - All You Should Know About It!

Prostate Cancer is a form of cancer that affects men. The prostate is basically a small gland that sits in the male pelvic cavity and is responsible for producing seminal fluid or semen, from its position under the bladder, surrounding the urethra. The testosterone hormone controls this gland.

Prostate cancer refers to the growth of a malignant mass of cells which can also be called a tumour. More about this cancer:

  • Risk Factors: The various risk factors involved in this kind of cancer are many. Advanced age, a family history of the same disease, obesity as well as genetic changes can lead to the development of this kind of tumour.
  • Types: There are basically two types of prostate cancer, including fast growing or aggressive, and slow growing or non-aggressive. Yet, it is also important to remember that not every abnormal growth in this gland can be termed as a tumour, or is a sign of prostate cancer. A malignant growth signifies prostate cancer. This tumour can grow at a fast pace for aggressive prostate cancer, while it can grow and spread slowly for the non-aggressive type.
  • Symptoms: It is possible to not have any kind of obvious symptoms when suffering from this kind of cancer. The symptoms usually begin to show up when the cancer has reached a more advanced stage. These include urinary problems, most significantly. The patient may go through pain and difficulty when it comes to urinating. This pain may also occur during ejaculation. The patient may also find blood discharge in the semen upon ejaculation and suffer from sexual dysfunction as well. Pain in the chest, pelvic area and back are also common symptoms of prostate cancer, which may gradually turn into numbness in the said areas as well.
  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis of the issue will be done by a specialist from the urology department. After a physical examination where a diagnosis of the symptoms and other check ups will happen, the doctor may conduct lab tests to check the blood, urine and other samples. Further, imaging tests like MRIand CT scans will also be conducted. A digital rectal exam and prostate biopsywill also help in effective diagnosis.
  • Treatment: The treatment of this kind of cancer usually depends on the severity of the symptoms and the spread of the tumour. Besides active observation, the doctor may also recommend radiation, chemotherapy and surgery based on the age and health condition of the patient. If you happen to find even subtle symptoms which could point towards this disease, do not hesitate to get in touch with the doctor.

Cancer Causing Foods That Should Be Ignored!

The food you eat is critical for your overall wellbeing as a number of cancers that affect the human body are of gastrointestinal origin. Stick to organic and chemical free foods to live a healthier life since they reduce the risk of cancer substantially. Regular consumption of the food items mentioned below increase your risk of developing cancer, as well as many other conditions and should be avoided at all costs.


1. Microwave Popcorn - Most microwave-popcorn bags are lined with c8, also known as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) which increases the risk of certain cancers such as kidney, testicular, bladder, pancreas and liver cancer notably. Microwave popcorn also contains an artificial or synthetic butter flavoring called diacetyl which is extremely toxic and obstructs breathing.


2. Canned Tomatoes - While tomatoes are considered to be cancer fighting foods, their canned counterparts are extremely unhealthy and may cause cancer. This is mainly due to the lining of the cans they are put in which contains a chemical known as bisphenol-A or BPA that has been proven to elevate the risk of infertility as well as prostate and breast cancer. Due to their (tomatoes) high acidity, BPA leaks from the lining of the cans and penetrates into the fruit. Tomatoes should be cooked fresh or stored in glass jars.


3. Processed/Grilled Red Meat - Processed meats such as sausages, prosciutto, bacon, pimento loaf, bologna, hot dogs etc., contain various chemicals and preservatives such as sodium nitrate. This is added to make the meat look fresh and appealing but are, in fact, carcinogenic in nature. Moreover, you should also avoid grilling meat since it releases a carcinogen known as heterocyclic aromatic amines. Another dangerous food item includes smoked meat since it picks up tar from the smoking process. 


4. Farmed Salmon - It is imperative to avoid farmed salmon because they are fed unnatural diets that are contaminated with carcinogens, antibiotics, chemicals, pesticides and so on. They also harbor sea lice, 30 times greater in amount than wild salmon. High levels of PCBs, cancer causing dioxins, and mercury have been found in them. It is advisable to opt for wild sockeye salmon instead of farmed salmon

8 Easy Ways By Which You Can Prevent Prostate Cancer!

8 Easy Ways By Which You Can Prevent Prostate Cancer!

A gland that produces a liquid which mixes with sperm and is ejaculated as semen during sexual activity, is the prostate gland and is located under the bladder of a man. Cancer in the prostate is one of the most common cancers that occur among men.

The risk of developing prostate cancer increases progressively with age. Although there is no absolute prevention of prostate cancer, evidence and doctors suggest that a healthy diet can play a key role. Here are a few tips that can go a long way in prevention of prostate cancer:

  1. Red Foods: Tomatoes, carrot, watermelon, and other red foods get their bright color from a powerful antioxidant called lycopene. Studies have proved that by having fruits that contain lycopene, you can reduce your risk of prostate cancer. Some findings suggest that cooking tomatoes make it easier for your body to absorb this antioxidant.
  2. Fruits and Vegetables: Green vegetables contain compounds called carcinogens, which help your body in breaking down cancer-causing substances. Spreading of cancer can be slowed down through a nutrient-rich diet. Avoiding processed junk food and eating fruits and vegetables containing nutrients and vitamins may lower the risk of getting prostate cancer.
  3. Feast on Fish: Fatty acid, also known as omega-3, is found in certain fish including sardines, tuna, mackerel, trout, and salmon. This may help in reducing the risk of developing prostate cancer.
  4. Soy and Tea: Some studies suggest that men who drink green tea or take green tea extract supplements have a lower risk of developing prostate cancer. Many soy products and other foods contain a nutrient called isoflavones, which has been linked to a reduced risk of prostate cancer.
  5. Coffee: Studies show that drinking three cups of coffee a day can reduce the chances of prostate cancer by 11 percent. There is a dose-response relationship between coffee and prostate cancer. The effects of prostate cancer go up or down with the amount of coffee you take. Someone who grabs an occasional cup only, may not have these effects. However, high doses of caffeine can result in major health issues.
  6. Fat: Studies indicate that animal fats and an increased risk of prostate cancer are linked. It is advised to replace animal-based fats with any kind of plant-based fat. In addition to this, overcooking the meat produces carcinogens, therefore it is suggested to be strictly avoided.
  7. Quit Smoking: Smokers are more likely to have an aggressive form of prostate cancer. The chances of a recurrence of the disease are more for people who smoke. It is never too late to quit smoking.
  8. Exercise: Regular exercise and maintaining a healthy body can help you to increase your muscle mass and metabolism. Too much fat in the middle of your body is linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer. You can try walking, running, bicycling or swimming to reduce the weight to lead a healthy life.

It is important to look after yourself and start taking essential steps to prevent prostate cancer rather than trying to manage it once you get it.

प्रोस्टेट कैंसर के लक्षण - Symptoms Of Prostate Cancer!

प्रोस्टेट कैंसर के लक्षण - Symptoms Of Prostate Cancer!

कैंसरों में एक कैंसर प्रोस्टेट कैंसर नाम का भी है. कैंसर जानलेवा बिमारियों में से एक है. इसके कई प्रकारों में से एक प्रोस्टेट कैंसर भी है. ये पुरुषों की पौरुष ग्रंथि में होने वाला एक कैंसर है. आपको बता दें कि पौरुष ग्रंथि, वीर्य उत्पादित करने वाली एक छोटी अखरोट के आकार की ग्रंथि है जिससे शुक्राणु ट्रांसपोर्ट होते हैं. प्रोस्टेट कैंसर पुरुषों में होने वाला सबसे आम कैंसर है. हलांकि ये आम तौर पर धीरे धीरे बढ़ता और शुरुआत में सिर्फ पौरुष ग्रंथि तक ही सीमित रहता है. यहाँ तक तो ये कोई गंभीर नुकसान नहीं पहुंचाता है. लेकिन किसी भी बिमारी का अनिदान शुरुवात में ही कर देना ठीक रहता है इसलिए प्रोस्टेट कैंसर का भी निदान शुरुआत में ही हो जाये तो (जब वो पौरुष ग्रंथि तक ही सीमित होता है) उपचार के सफलता की सम्भावना ज्यादा होती है. ये आवश्यक नहीं है कि पौरुष ग्रंथि में आई अनियमितता प्रोस्टेट कैंसर ही हो. इसलिए ये बेहद आवश्यक है कि इसका पता इसके शुरुवात में ही लगाया जाए. इसके लिए इसके शुरुवाती संकेतों को समझना आवश्यक है. तो आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हमलोग प्रोस्टेट कैंसर के लक्षणों पर एक नजर डालें.

प्रोस्टेट कैंसर के लक्षण
अलग अलग लोगों में कैंसर के अलग अलग लक्षण पाए जाते हैं. कुछ पुरुषों में कोई भी लक्षण नहीं मिलते. प्रोस्टेट कैंसर के कुछ लक्षण निम्न हैं:

1. मूत्रत्याग शुरू करने में परेशानी.

2. मूत्र का प्रवाह बाधित होना बार बार पेशाब आना.

3. खासकर रात में मूत्राशय को पूरी तरह से खाली करने में कठिनाई मूत्रत्याग करने में दर्द या जलन महसूस होना मूत्र या वीर्य में खून आना.

4. पीठ, कूल्हों या श्रोणि में दर्द जो ठीक न हो.

5. स्खलन में दर्द.
इनमें से कोई भी लक्षण दिखे तो बिना किसी झिझक के तुरंत अपने डॉक्टर को अवश्य दिखाएँ. ध्यान दें कि यह लक्षण कैंसर के अलावा किसी और असामान्यता के कारण भी हो सकता है जिसका पता जांच के बाद ही चलता है.

प्रोस्टेट कैंसर के कारण
आपको बता दें कि इसके होने के स्पष्ट कारणों का अभी पता नहीं लगाया जा सका है लेकिन फिर भी कुछ विशेषज्ञ कहते हैं कि कोशिकाओं में आने वाली अनियमितता इसका एक कारण हो सकता है. असामन्य कोशिकाओं के DNA में म्यूटेशंस की वजह से सामान्य कोशिकाओं की तुलना में यह कोशिकाएं जल्दी बढ़ती और विभाजित होती हैं. इस वजह से असामन्य कोशिकाएं जीवित रहती हैं और अन्य नष्ट होती जाती हैं. ये असामान्य कोशिकाएं एक ट्यूमर बनाती हैं जो बढ़कर आसपास के ऊतकों पर हमला करता है. कुछ असामान्य कोशिकाएं बढ़कर शरीर के अन्य अंगों में भी फ़ैल सकती हैं. निम्न कारक प्रोस्टेट कैंसर के जोखिम को बढ़ाते हैं:

वृद्धावस्था: उम्र के साथ प्रोस्टेट कैंसर होने का जोखिम भी बढ़ता है.


अनुवांशिक परेशानी: अगर आपके परिवार में किसी प्रोस्टेट कैंसर या ब्रैस्ट कैंसर है या रह चुका है, तो आपको प्रोस्टेट कैंसर होने का खतरा ज़्यादा है.

मोटापा: मोटापे से ग्रस्त पुरुषों में इस बीमारी के ज़्यादा गंभीर होने की सम्भावना रहती है जिसका उपचार किया जाना मुश्किल हो जाता है.
