Prostate cancer symptoms diet and treatment


Prostate cancer is most common in older age, very rarely in forty five years of age, and it is believed that improper diet and genetic predisposition are major risk factors for developing the disease. It belongs to the second most common malignancy that affects the male population, and if it is detected early prostate cancer is completely curable.

That is why regular check-ups in the latter age a healthy diet are the best prevention. Besides official treatment of assistance can be various preparations of medicinal herbs, which will be discussed in this article.

Prostate Cancer Symptoms

In the early stages, prostate cancer symptoms almost never occur. This applies equally for both benign and malignant form of the disease. The first signs of the disease appeared only after the tumour has significantly increased and begins to exert pressure through the urethra to the prostate. Then, with the patient reports frequent urination, particularly nocturia, pain when urinating, frequent blood in the urine, painful ejaculation, impotence, pain in lower back, gout, pain in the penis and fever.

Prostate cancer in most cases is formed in the outer part of the male sex glands, and it is assumed that it is preceded by bacterial prostatitis and some viral infections (herpes virus, human papilloma virus, and cytomegalovirus).

In case of these symptoms and signs of disease, you should see a urologist, to timely perform all the necessary tests and to proceed with an adequate treatment. It is very important for the outcome of the treatment.

Namely in the world the situation is not so good, primarily because of the mentality of the male population, where a physician in most cases is visited only when the symptoms are fierce, strong pain. This is not the case only in prostate cancer, but this situation is more or less in all cases. It is high time that the awareness of personal health, and healthy eating.


Treatment for prostate cancer depends mostly on the stage of disease and the age of the patient. One procedure applied radical prostatectomy in which the whole gland part of the urethra (urethral) is removed surgically and thereafter the patient resumes radiotherapy (radiation therapy), and hormonal therapy (which is a standard procedure).

Prostate cancer is one of the malignant tumours which is the second most common in male population. If symptoms of prostate cancer are detected in time, in the earlier stages of the disease, the effectiveness of cure is very high, up to 98 percent. Therefore, the most important is prevention and regular control by a urologist, after fifty years of life. Under "regularly" it is deemed to be necessary at least once a year to do a digital rectal examination of the prostate, where the value of PSA (prostate spec.antigena) in blood is determined. In this way each problem is much more efficiently solved - enlarged prostate, prostatitis and even malignant tumour.

Prostate cancer bone metastases - in the advanced stages of the disease, bone metastases are the most common and in the area of pelvis and vertebrae, and sometimes liver and lungs are affected and in the most severe complications the central nervous system is affected. The values ​​and PSA findings, so far are only a test for prostate cancer, it has a lot of pretty big drawbacks: higher values ​​may, but need not, indicate prostate cancer, if it exists, it is not certain that the tumour will grow and spread, a further examination of biopsy may or may not cause complications.

The latest non-invasive method - PSI prostate health index - should replace the PSA test or be applied after it (if the results are problematic). PSI test is used to check protein markers in the blood, which allow for more precise diagnosis and reduce the need for performing a biopsy by 31%.


Nutritionists advise all people who have certain prostate problems to avoid fatty meat, dairy products with a high percentage of fat and especially all fried meals. This is not good preventive for prostate cancer, but also for all other malignant, or chronic diseases. With this group of foods all industrial food should also be avoided. Also it is important to limit the daily amount of meat (chicken or fish) on portions of a maximum of 100 grams per meal. Be sure to prepare meat with steam.

The main guidelines for food is for it to be diverse as possible and to use vegetables and freshly squeezed juices. This big shift in diet to a healthy plant foods, may initially lead to a decline in hormones in the body and reduce load on the kidney. Therefore, it is explainable that prostate cancer rarely occurs in regions where more food of vegetables are consumed.

Experts stress the importance of the introduction of natural zinc through their diet because it was found that in men with diseased prostate there is a deficit of this mineral. It is therefore advisable to have more frequent consumption of raw pumpkin seeds, sprouted wheat, peas and nuts. In addition, it is necessary to limit the amount of salt and spicy food and alcohol preferably should be completely removed.
