Prostate Cancer - Symptoms and Treatment with Ayurveda
Prostate cancer is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate gland of the male reproductive system. Prostate gland is an exocrine gland and the cancer starts in the gland cells, also called adenocarcinoma.
Prostate cancer is a very slow progressing disease and many men die of old age, without even knowing that they had prostate cancer. Several reports indicate that about 80% of all men in their eighties had prostate cancer when they died. The cause of prostate cancer is still unknown, but the possible factors include age, race, medications and genetics heredity.
Some studies indicate that there might be a link between the regular use of anti-inflammatory medicines and prostate cancer risk. The primary risk factor of prostate cancer is most probably the age. The old age of a man is the main risk of this type of cancer. Globally, prostate cancer is rare among men under the age of 45, but more common after the age of 50 and above.
Symptoms of prostate cancer in men are generally observed after a routine check up or blood test. These include:-
- Frequent urination by the patient (especially at night),
- Difficult and painful urination,
- Blood in the urine,
- Painful ejaculation
- Difficult erection.
- Advanced prostate cancer further leads to severe pain in the spine, pelvis, ribs, proximal part of the femur and leg weakness.
Early stages of prostate cancer treatment include surgery and radiation therapy. Surgery is recommended to remove the tissue around the prostate gland and only when the cancer has not spread beyond the prostate gland. Side-effects of surgery are difficulty in controlling urine and erection problems. Radiation therapy uses high-powered x-rays to kill cancer cells in the prostate gland. It may also be used after surgery and if there is a risk that prostate cancer cells are still present.
Hormonal therapy is the treatment that decreases the effect of testosterone on prostate cancer and can prevent further growth & spread of cancer. But, it has been observed that after surgery, radiation therapy and hormonal therapy; problems interfere with sexual desire or performance by the patient. Other common problems are impotency, loss of appetite, fatigueness, skin irritation, diarrhea and blood in the urine. Chemotherapy and immunotherapy are used to treat prostate cancers that do not respond to the above treatments, but the satisfactory & desired results are not observed.
