Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men.  There are generally two types of prostate cancer – one that grows slowly and confined in the prostate gland, and others that spread more aggressively.  Like other cancers, early detection increases your chance of overcoming the disease successfully.  Because the blood level of the Prostate-Specific Antigen is usually elevated, that’s why PSA testing is one of the main way to catch the disease early.  However, PSA results may lead to something called “overdiagnosis” according to the National Cancer Institute, where treatments for non-life-threatening tumor leads to complications and side effects such as infection, erectile dysfunction, problems with bowel function, and urinary incontinence.

Since we are nearly the end of Men’s Health Month, we encourage all men to talk to your doctor about your need for a prostate exam and PSA test.

Cancer is life changing, and it is important to go through every decision as thoroughly as possible.  Here is a few that you need to consider according to CancerCare.org. First is to choose the best doctor for your needs.  Someone who specialized in prostate cancer is far more effective than someone who is not, and more importantly, be sure he or she is someone you are comfortable with.  We understand that there is a high level of uncertainty and that you have many questions, so keep asking and digging until you find the answers that you need.  After that, it is always good to be prepared about what should be expected out of treatments, the symptoms and side effects of everything, and find support for family, friends, and free services from the many great organizations that will help you. Lastly, do review your financial situation to determine the costs and whether help is needed for such costs.  If you are able to be thorough about these decisions, then you will be well ahead in your fight against metastatic prostate cancer or any other type of cancer.
