All you need to know about Prostate cancer 

Dr. Susheel Kharbanda says, “Prostate cancer is the commonest cancer found in males worldwide. After lung cancer, it is the commonest cancer. As compared to other countries, In India, prostate cancer is generally found at a later stage and diagnosed at a later stage due to lack of awareness about it. There is generally a late diagnosis of this cancer as there are no symptoms at the initial stages. After the age of 50 years, all men should go for a routine check-up with their urologist. The diagnosis can be done by a urologist- 

Physical pre-rectal examination PSA test above 4  Biopsy  MRI scan PET PSA based scan Urinary symptoms  Blood in urine  Blood in semen Bone pain 

Causes of Prostate cancer 

Dr. Susheel Kharbanda informs, “All cancer formed in the body are idiopathic with unknown origin with no specific causes. Other causes of prostate cancer- 

Dietary - high-fat diet
Age above 50 + years 
Family history - get an early check-up at age 45+
Late detection - early detection can be manageable and cured

Prevention of Prostate cancer 

Dr. Susheel Kharbanda states, “The cause is idiopathic hence we do not know how to stop and avoid prostate cancer completely. There are some preventative measures -

A healthy diet with fruits and vegetables  Healthy diet over Dietary Supplements  Exercise 6 days a week  Control and manage weight  An annual check-up for above 45 + years  Healthy lifestyle 

Different stages of prostate cancer 

Dr. Susheel Kharbanda says, “All cancers are divided into staging and grading. Staging of cancer means the level of spread of cancer. Grading means the rate at which cancer cells multiply. The three stages of prostate cancer are - 

Stage 1 - Localized and confined to the prostate gland Stage 2 - Prostate cancer affected the surrounding tissues like seminal vesicles, lymph nodes - Locally advancer  Stage 3 - Metastasis of cancer to bones 

Management of Prostate cancer and Strong follow up is a must 

Stage 1 -Curative treatment with Robotc radical prostate surgery  Stage 2 - Surgery and Radiation along with hormonal management  Stage 3 - There is no cure. Manageable treatment can be given.”
