CAUSES, MANAGEMENT SYMPTOMS, TREATMENT, PREVENTION OF PROSTATE CANCER

ABSTRACT

Prostate cancer is the form of cancer that develops in the prostate.  It lead to increased death rate yearly although its specific causes are age, genetic with some environmental factors such as toxins chemical and industrial product.  The symptoms are painful and frequent lamination, painful ejaculation of blood in the urine, weakness in legs and difficult in walking.  The easiest and inexpensive way to reduce the risk of prostate cancer is by eating healthy food with adequate starch, fibre fruit and vegetables garnisheed with antioxidant spices.  Research has shown that using aspirin along in treatment of prostate cancer does not shown statistically significant effect but the combination of aspirin and folic acid supplement is more effective in the treatment of prostate cancer.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

This is a disease that begins in the cells of the body in a normal situation, the cell grow and divide as the        body needs them.  This  orderly process is distorted when new cell form in the body and the body did not need them and the old body did not need and the old cell do not die when the they should.  The extra cell lumps together to form a growth or tumor (Brown et al 2006).

Cancer occurs when cellular reproduction process growth goes out of control. In other words, cancer is a disease that is characterized by the uncontrolled uncoordinated and undesirable Cells continues to grow and divided for their whole lives, replicating into more harmful cells. The abnormal growth and division found in cancer cells is caused by damage in these cells.  Deoxynobonucleic acid (DNA) (genetic materials inside cells that determine cellular characteristics and functions).  Cancerous cell can travel to other part of the body through the blood stream or lymph vessels. This process metastatsis (Turner et al, 2006).

 

 

PROSTATE

Prostate is part of male reproductive system that help to make and store seminal fluid in adult men.  A typical prostrate is about three centimeter long and weight about twenty grams. Williams et al (2010),

It is located in the pelvis, under the lunar bladder and in front of the urethra, the tube carries urine during ejaculation.

PROSTRATE CANCER

This is a form of cancer that develops in the prostrate, a gland in the male reproductive system.  It wraps around the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the body.  Most prostrate cancer is slow growing, however, they are caused of aggressive prostrate cancer, the cancer may metastasize (spread) from the prostrate to other part of the body. :  Gabriel (2009)

The development of prostrate cancer is a slow process, typically taking from between two to four years to double in size. This slow growth often long time without detection cancers growth is as result of abnormal cell growth out of control.

 

 

TYPES OF PROSTRATE CANCER

There are basically three types of prostrate cancer. Salomon et al (2009).

  • Adenome cancinoma prostrate cancer
  • Small cell carcinoma prostrate cancer
  • Squamous cell carcinoma
