Prostate Trouble? Guys: Get tested for prostate enlargement & cancer

Don't Leave it to Chance

Gentlemen....... Just by reading this article, you will know more about the prostate gland, prostate troubles and prostate cancer than 98% of the rest of the population of the UK, or the planet, for that matter.

For some reason nobody talks about it, it's never mentioned, except in the darkest recesses of the doctors surgery, and most of us don't even know it exists. Yet it kills thousands of males every year. Many of those deaths could be avoided.

One in five men are diagnosed as having prostate cancer at some point in their lives. You must agree, 20% is a lot! Many other men, in fact, most other men who have other protate problems, do not have or develop prostate cancer, but prostate cancer is the number two most diagnosed cancer, behind skin cancer, in males, and the number two cause of death by cancer, after lung cancer.

What is the prostate gland?
The prostate gland is a walnut-sized gland and is part of the male reproductive system. It surrounds the urethra, the tube which carries urine out of the body. Try to imagine it as the nut that screws onto a bolt, surrounding the bolt, the bolt being the urethra. The prostate gland produces the fluid part of semen, and enables the transport of sperm.

The prostate gland is extremely energetic, producing cells at a phenomenal rate. This increases the chances of something going wrong during cell division, so that cancerous cells are produced instead of normal ones. That is not to say that prostate cancer is inevitable or an accident waiting to happen. Rather, it is perhaps the product of many years of previous cell mutation. There is no doubt now, that there is an increased risk to an individual who has had a father or brother with the disease.

So what causes prostate problems?
As men age, the prostate gland begins to enlarge over time, starting at about age 40. This can put pressure on the urethra (you could say, tightening the nut), which has the effect of slowing down or cutting off the flow of urine.

Symptoms to watch out for! Or, when to go see your doctor!
  1. If you develop a weak urine stream.
  2. If you find it difficult to completely empty the bladder.
  3. If you need to urinate with urgency or increasing regularity.
  4. If you get up several times a night to urinate.
  5. If you have trouble starting to urinate.
  6. If you dribble for several minutes after visiting the toilet.
Remember, none of these things on their own, mean you have a life-threatening problem, as, actually, they are all symptoms of bladder infection as well. But, for your own peace of mind, check them with your doctor, who will, depending on your age, congratulate you on your diligence, and will no doubt recommend that you keep a eye on any developments.

This is not a problem for somebody else! It's your body, don't ever be afraid to look after it, or to question it's processes or failings!

Get Tested!!!
There are several ways to stall the onset of prostate problems in later life, and prostate trouble cannot pounce on you, unnoticed, if you are prepared for it and look at the issues early enough.
The Prostate Location - from Wikipedia
Depending on your age, initiate a regular testing program through your doctor, starting at about 50 on, earlier, if you are shown to be at higher risk, through family history or ethnic background.

There was once, and still is, the dreaded DRE (digital rectal exam). This gives direct and physical evidence of an enlarged, hard, soft, lumpy or smooth, prostate gland. I'll leave it to your imagination to decifer how this information is arrived at.

Much more humane, is the PSA (prostate specific antigen) test. Which you'll be relieved to know is a blood test. Opt for this one! DRE's are fine, but if it's discovered there's a problem, then, I'm sorry, but you've already got it. You don't suddenly wake up one day and you've got a prostate problem. They take years to develop, sometimes decades. The PSA test looks for abnormal levels of prostate produced enzyme and can detect a potential problem years before it manifests itself. There lies its beauty and simplicity.

What else can I do?
The answer here is:- Knowledge, and you've done that already. Testing, and I'm sure you will be thinking about that by now. Exercise, which we'll look at now, closely followed by Nutrition, which we'll discuss at the end.

This is when everybody huffs and splutters, because exercise is one of the least enjoyable activities for many people. It doesn't have to be a chore. A few minutes walking, swimming, fishing, trotting, dancing, playing bowls or skittles, several times a week, will keep you active enough to qualify for this. Also, activity is known to stimulate urine production.

It is always sensible to have a healthy diet. But also, there are certain foods which are known to have a beneficial effect on the body, when it comes to fighting cancer. The Digital Rectal Examination - from Wikipedia
  1. Avoid caffeine whenever possible and limit alcohol use as both of these can cause irritation of the bladder.
  2. Drink plenty of water, to help the body rid itself of toxins and contaminants.
  3. Increase your intake of Omega-3 fatty acids (either supplements or fish, like mackeral, tuna and salmon).
  4. Avoid or cut down on saturated fat, meat and dairy products.
  5. Lycopene, found in tomatoes, has also been shown to lower the prostate cancer risk. Several helpings a week may prove the most beneficial.
  6. Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables to increase your intake of the antioxidant vitamins, A, C and E.
  7. Vitamin D, E and Selenium have also been shown to lower the risk of prostate cancer. These are available as supplements where appropriate.
Please take all vitamins at appropriate levels and never mega-dose. This is bad!

Illness impacts on our lives in many different ways, and prostate troubles are no different, affecting the quality of our lives for a lot longer than the quantity of it. With some diligence and a few precautions, you can reduce the possiblility of it impacting on your latter years.

Can Spiritual Healing help with Prostate Problems?
Yes, I'm certain that it can help! Age, sex or the progress, or extent of any disease, is not an issue with Healing and I'm always ready to try Healing on everything. Healers cannot, and should never, promise a cure, but there is little wrong with any of us that I have not found is helped in some way by Spiritual Healing.

Whether hospitalisation is required or not, Healing brings with it a very deep sense of calm and reassurance. Our body's have a very strong sense of recovery and occasionally need a little encouragement to direct Healing Energy to where it's most needed. Healing can reduce the recovery time following a hospital stay, or at any time we are unwell.
