Overview of prostate cancer
Prostate cancer develops in the prostate, which is a part of a man's reproductive system. It affects one out of every nine males. Prostate cancer develops when cancerous cells form in the prostate's tissues. It is more common in men over 55, but the risk grows as one gets older.
It can metastasize to tissues around the prostate, bones, and lymph nodes. It can further spread to distant parts of the body like the brain, liver, lungs, etc., through blood vessels and lymph nodes.
What are the causes of prostate cancer?
Though the actual causes of prostate cancer are unknown, the following factors appear to raise the risk of cancer:
- Family history
- Advanced age
- Vitamin D deficiency
- Inflammation of prostate
- Consuming high-fat food
What are the symptoms of prostate cancer?
Prostate cancer symptoms are similar to those of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) at first. However, as the condition progresses, other symptoms may appear. Common signs and symptoms include:
- Urination needs are frequent and occasionally urgent, especially at night.
- Pain during urination and weak flow
- Changes in bowel movement
- Erectile dysfunction
- Blood in urine or semen
- Painful ejaculation
- Numbness in the feet or leg
- Pain in the pelvic, hip, and lower back
- Weight loss
How is prostate cancer diagnosed?
Prostate cancer screenings are the most efficient method for detecting the disease early. If your cancer risk is average, your first prostate screening should most likely be at the age of 55. If you have a family history of the condition, your doctor may begin testing sooner. Dr. Sumanta Mishra, a prostate cancer specialist in Bhubaneswar, will ask you to undergo a few tests:
- Digital rectal exam
- Prostate-specific antigen blood test
What are the different options for prostate cancer treatment?
There are several options available at UroFirst - Advanced Urology Centre for prostate cancer treatment in Bhubaneswar. Dr. Sumanta Mishra will recommend the best line of treatment based on the grade and stage of cancer and the patient's health.
Prostate cancer grows slowly in many cases. Thus, early medical intervention may not be necessary. We treat low-grade prostate cancers with a watchful waiting or active monitoring strategy. It means that the doctor will closely monitor cancer by keeping an eye on the changing symptoms and doing regular tests to see whether or not more treatment is required.
If cancer has not gone beyond the prostate gland, Dr. Sumanta Mishra, a competent prostate cancer specialist in Bhubaneswar, will perform a radical prostatectomy, wherein the entire prostate gland and surrounding tissues are removed. The procedure can be performed using laparoscopy, resulting in reduced patient discomfort and a faster recovery time.
Chemotherapy is used to kill cancer cells and shrink the tumor. The medications are either given through injections, intravenously or orally. This method is becoming more prevalent in prostate cancer treatment in Bhubaneswar, particularly for high-grade cancer.
To kill cancer cells, radiation uses high-energy x-rays, particles, or gamma rays. Brachytherapy (internal radiation) and external beam radiation are two types of radiation therapy. In internal radiation, a radioactive source will be placed directly into or near the tumor by Dr. Sumanta Mishra, a prostate cancer specialist in Bhubaneswar. In contrast, high-energy x-ray beams focus on cancer from outside the body in external radiation therapy.
Hormone therapy helps lower male hormones (androgens) and prevent them from impacting prostate cancer cells. It is also known as Androgen Suppression Therapy and Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT). Prostate cancers shrink in size and grow more slowly when androgen levels are low.
