Signs and Symptoms for Prostate Cancer

It starts with the pain ? when you are urinating, you could suddenly start to feel some serious inflammation and having difficulty in maintaining a steady stream. That isn’t the beginning of prostate cancer; as a matter of fact, at this time the condition is graduating to its second phase, in which the cancerous tumor in your prostate has started to grow, causing prostate enlargement and blocking off your urine.

There are no symptoms for early stage (stage I) prostate cancer, so you have no way of telling that you have it by yourself. Your only chance is to go in and see a doctor as often as is reasonable ? say once a year ? to get a complete medical checkup. Allow them to do a digital physical examination of your prostate gland through your colon, and tell if there is a lump there, and to confirm that diagnosis through a series of tests that culminate in a biopsy so that they can establish that you have the disease or not.

If the condition gets past that stage, it starts with the pain during urination, and quickly graduates to pain in ejaculation. You might even think it was some small infection that would burn itself out pretty soon, but then you’d be wrong, and you’ll know it when you start to see blood in your urine and in your semen. I am yet to meet a man who will not hurry and see a doctor when such symptoms begin to appear, and I don’t think you’ll be the first. They take you through the same prostate cancer diagnostic processes, and then they stage the disease as effectively as they can, using the Gleason scale, so that they can determine the best treatment suitable for you in that regard.

Stage III prostate cancer happens too, either as a result of delayed or ineffectual treatment, or high resistance of the cancerous cells to the treatments administered. It is called metastatic prostate cancer because the tumors have metastasized (spread) to various other organs and tissues in your body, and it is usually characterized by a lot of bone pain, starting from the lymph nodes to the pelvis and hip bones, and then down to the femur or thigh bone, and up to the ribs. Metastatic prostate cancer also attacks the bones of the spinal column, and could pack up at the base of your spine, pressing against your spinal cord. This is when you usually could get fecal and urinary incontinence, along with more pain.

Even some prostate cancer treatments have a lot of side effects that include incontinence. Radiation therapy for prostate cancer could cause a series of other symptoms like sores, and radiation sickness, and incontinence, as can various forms of surgeries. Even as specific as laparoscopic prostatectomy is, there is a high risk of impotence resulting as a consequence of the treatment, not to mention the relatively more dangerous and volatile radical prostatectomy.

Brachytherapy, a form of internal radiotherapy, could cause the same side effects, as can cryosurgery, believed to be superior to radical prostatectomy for recurrent cancer following radiation therapy and causing fewer problems with urinary control than other treatments. It’s like a curse of prostate cancer, this high risk of incontinence. Cancer de la prostate incontinence.
