March is Prostate Cancer awareness month
The causes of prostate cancer are largely unknown. However, certain things can increase your risk of developing the condition.The chances of developing prostate cancer increase as you get older. Most cases develop in men aged 50 or older.
Common symtoms include:
-Burning or pain during urination
-Difficulty urinating, or trouble starting and stopping while urinating
-More frequent urges to urinate at night
-Loss of bladder control
-Decreased flow or velocity of urine stream
-Blood in urine (hematuria)
For many men with prostate cancer, treatment is not immediately necessary.
If the cancer is at an early stage and not causing symptoms, your doctor may suggest either "watchful waiting" or "active surveillance". The best option depends on your age and overall health. Both options involve carefully monitoring your condition. Some cases of prostate cancer can be cured if treated in the early stages.
