prostate cancer checkup

 

In 1998, around 35,000 males died because of prostate cancer.  That same year, around 200,000 males were diagnosed to have contracted the disease.  Prostate problems in general would claim around half-a-million victims.  These statistics were culled by the National Center for Health Statistics 8 years ago.  It is projected that the numbers have since increased, given the fact that heredity plays a crucial role in the development of prostate problems, hence indicating that they could exponentially spread.

Whether it be Prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or prostate cancer, dangers to the prostate gland are quite common for males above the age of 50.  As such, your health should not be left to chance.  As early as today, you could take some essential and beneficial steps towards problematic prostate prevention. 

But what are these steps for problematic prostate prevention, exactly?

Well, we could divide them into two categories: detection and action.

Almost every medical professional would say that the best way to prevent prostate complications is through early detection.  The problem is, once the symptoms of prostate problems become apparent, it is often too late to cure the disease.  This is why a regular medical checkup is a required step in problematic prostate prevention.  This becomes even more necessary when the subject is above the age of 40.

Determining the presence of risk factors is also an important component of this category of disease prevention.  If any of the following conditions are applicable, then you can say that you have a greater risk of developing some prostate complications:

  • family history of prostate problems;
  • early enlargement of the prostate;
  • being over the age of 35 to 40; and
  • exposure to unfavorable environmental conditions

Again, if any or all of these conditions are present, such should be your sign that problematic prostate prevention should be taken to the next level.

Knowing that you're in danger is not enough.  You should act on it to save your body from the ill effects of an eventual prostate problem.  Seek the help of a doctor as soon as possible.  He will recommend the applicable treatments that can be used to rid you of potential ailments.  

You should also undertake to comply with extraordinary precautions, given the fact that you already have the aforementioned risk factors.  Proper prevention can be achieved by avoiding a diet consisting of saturated fat, high intake of alcohol, and red meat.  It can also be achieved by supplementing your diet with fruits and vegetables rich with Lycopene such as tomatoes, apricots, guavas and watermelons.  Soy is also known as an effective counteragent against prostate degeneration.  Pumpkin seeds contain phytonutrients that will help you combat the same.

Proper prevention lies in your hands.  Don't wait for the time when you would have to undergo treatment.  Save your life as early as today, instead of waiting for the time when the chances of survival are precariously established.

Prostate Supplements and Vitamins

Wed 18 May 2016 by Craig Thomson

Prostate supplements and vitamins often claim to reinforce the health of your prostate; and some even claim to include ingredients that enhance sexual potency. Despite these ambitious claims from manufacturers, many supplements simply cannot do what they claim.

Prostate cancer is a fear cradled by most men.  The chances of developing such a disease are quite alarming, if statistics would be believed.  In 1998 alone, for example, almost 35,000 males died because of prostate cancer.  And that figure is expected to increase, considering that close to 200,000 other men were positively diagnosed of the said ailment, and that prostate cancer can be passed on to the next generation at an exponential rate.

Perhaps it is this fear that led to the preponderance of products that have flooded the market, with some of them claiming to be ...
