Facts Men Need to Know About Prostate Cancer

An estimated one out of seven men face a diagnosis of prostate cancer at some point during their lives. This disease is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American men, falling just behind lung cancer. Understanding the facts about this disease can help men see the importance of early detection and assist them should they face a battle against it.

Here are six important things men need to know about prostate cancer, prevention and detection:

1. Diet may play a role – While the full connection between diet and prostate cancer is not yet known, medical professionals recommend a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. It is best to avoid sugars and refined grains.

2. Yearly PSAs are not always necessary – Prostate-specific antigen testing is one of the screening tests for prostate disease. While important for early screening, the test isn’t generally necessary on an annual basis for men who aren’t at high risk or who have never had a positive diagnosis of prostate cancer. It is best, however, to discuss the PSA with a medical professional.

3. Genetics may play a role – Men should share their entire family medical history with their doctors. Genetics may play a role in the development of prostate cancer and a host of other cancers.

4. Biopsies are a standard for care – Men who are on a monitoring protocol for prostate cancer may find themselves going in for frequent biopsies to gauge the progress or lack thereof of the disease. Discuss the necessity of this with a medical professional.

5. There is more than one treatment option – Men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer will find there are a number of treatment options available. The best path to take will depend on the particular case in question and the progression of the disease.

6. Open communication with medical professionals is critical – Men who are concerned about prostate cancer or who have been diagnosed with it should communicate clearly with their doctors. It’s important to have a clear line of communication so the best possible detection and/or treatment options can be explored. Men should play an active role in their care, as well.

Prostate cancer is quite often a highly treatable disease that men can walk away from with their quality of life intact. The more men know about the disease, the better.
