One in two people in the UK will get cancer at some point in their lives, an absolutely terrifying statistic.
While many types of vile disease come with few symptoms, others have signs that can help identify it as quickly as possible.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the United Kingdom. The causes are unknown, but the chances of developing it increase as we get older.
It develops slowly and many men have not seen any symptoms for years.
It is not until the prostate becomes big enough to affect the tube that carries the urine out of the bladder and out of the penis that some of the tell-tell signs begin to appear.
According to the national health service, there are seven things that all men should keep under control, which could be a symptom of the disease.
- You need to pee more frequently, often during the night
- I need to run to the bathroom
- Difficulty in starting to pee (hesitation)
- Straining or spending a lot of time while peeing
- Weak flow
- To feel that the bladder has not completely emptied
- Blood in the urine or in the sperm
There are numerous tests that can help diagnose prostate cancer, which the doctor should be able to organize.
They are a blood test, a physical examination of the prostate, an MRI or a biopsy.
If the disease is diagnosed early, it can be treated by radiation therapy or surgery to remove it.
However, if it is not captured late, it can spread to other parts of the body.
Experts do not know why, but prostate cancer is more common in men of African-Caribbean or African origin and Asian men are less likely to be affected.
