According to the Indian National Cancer Registry, prostate cancer rates will increase by 220 percent by the year 2020. This is the second most-common form of cancer in men. It is also the sixth-leading cause of male cancer deaths.
Studies have also shown that certain groups of men are more likely to be affected by prostate cancer than others. Additionally, ethnicity can also affect prostate cancer rates. For example, Indian men are more likely to die from prostate cancer than Caucasian men.
Dr. Sanjai Adda is a consultant who works for Apollo Cancer Institute. He stated that there are multiple factors that can lead to prostate cancer. Lifestyle, environmental and food habits are some of the things that can contribute to prostate cancer. Alcohol consumption, processed foods and fatty food can increase the risk of prostate cancer. People who are obese and sedentary are more likely to develop prostate cancer.
The prostate has a tendency to increase in size as one gets older. That is why men who are over the age of 60 are more likely to develop prostate cancer. The good news is that prostate cancer can be cured if it is caught early. In fact, 95 percent of prostate cancer cases can be cured if they are caught early.
Bloody urine is one of the most common symptoms of prostate cancer. It is estimated that 25 percent of men with prostate cancer have bloody urine. Surgery and radiation are the standard treatments available for prostate cancer. There are also new drugs that are being tested.
When cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it can be difficult to treat. More aggressive treatment will be needed. In many cases, people do not survive. That is why it is important to get this condition diagnosed early so that it can be treated before it spreads.
