About Prostate Cancer:

In this type of cancer, healthy cells in prostate start growing abnormally forming a lump called a tumor which may spread to other parts of the body. Prostate is a walnut shaped gland present in males and functions to produce seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. According to  American Cancer Society, there will be 174,650 new cases of prostate cancer in the United States (2019). 

Prostate cancer risk factors:

  1. People older than 60 years of age are at higher risk. 
  2. Family history. 
  3. Genetic alterations.
  4. Obesity.
  5. Individuals with high intake of red meat, dairy foods, and calcium. 

 

Prostate cancer symptoms:

  1. Stop and go flow of urine. 
  2. Blood in urine or semen.
  3. Pain in the back, hips, ribs, or pelvis. 
  4. Trouble in starting urination or emptying bladder completely. 

 

About 1 out of 9 men in the US will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Therefore, we should all work together to spread prostate cancer awareness. Our team of doctors and content developers have worked together to create informative content in multiple formats - infographics, videos, and articles which you can check out here. Feel free to share them and spread awareness.
