When it comes to health problems, men should be more vigilant about prostate cancer than anything else. Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers diagnosed in men and the second leading cause of death after lung cancer. What makes it extremely dangerous is the fact that most men find out when there is nothing left to do. That is why men have to go to the doctor and get tested when the smallest symptoms appear.


It is not uncommon for prostate cancer to spread to the bones. That is why many men will complain of bone pain. There are other cases where patients can develop spinal cord impingement due to epidural spread of the disease. From this moment on, pain or neurological damage is inevitable, depending on the area in which the spinal cord injury is located. Not to mention other side effects, such as loss of bowel, bladder function, ability to walk, etc.


Also known as a silent killer, prostate cancer takes people by surprise because it does not reveal precise symptoms. The symptoms one may feel are very similar to those described for prostate infections. These inconclusive features are what can make the diagnosis of prostate cancer difficult. A good idea would be to consult your GP or a specialist at the first signs that something is wrong or on a regular basis.

Accurate signals

Among the signs that may indicate prostate cancer, we must mention: blood in the urine (can be seen with the naked eye or microscopically), pain when urinating, swelling, weight loss, inability to urinate, etc. However, symptoms may not always show up, so the diagnosis often occurs by accident.


Genetics play a very important role in the evolution of cancer. Thus, if a man has a father or brother who has suffered from this disease, the chances of developing it are doubled. But this can be seen as half good news, because by studying a man’s genome, specialists can predict the right kind of treatment and drugs.

Regular walking at a brisk pace can actually help prostate cancer. For example, cancer stagnation has been observed in men who have taken a regular walk at a constant speed of 3 miles / hour (or even more) for a minimum of 3 hours a week.


Treatment depends on the size of the tumor, the body’s resistance, and many other factors. It is important to think and act quickly in situations of this type, trying all possible solutions. Side effects are often similar to those of radiation therapy. However, several patients have reported that with proton therapy, the side effects are less violent. Subsequently, another vital step is therapy to restore erectile function. However, total success is not always guaranteed.

Cancer can definitely be a scary word. But it is important to remain optimistic and think about the fact that, if caught early, treatment can be one hundred percent successful.
