Men’s Health Checkup
Movember – It’s time to ‘man up’ and take charge of your health, especially when it comes to prostate health.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men, after skin cancer. It is usually slow-growing, and the risk of prostate cancer increases with age. There is no exact known cause of prostate cancer, however, the risk factors include family history and advancing age. In the initial stages, prostate cancer may not give rise to any symptoms. However, symptoms increase as cancer progresses.
The prostate is a gland in men that is a part of the male reproductive system. Its shape is similar to that of a walnut and it helps make semen. The size of the prostate grows larger with age. If that prostate gets too large, chances are that it can cause trouble.
Although there are no foolproof ways to prevent prostate conditions, as some of them tend to be a natural part of aging, there are some specific measures you can take to keep your prostate in good condition. Which your doctor can advise you.
All men are prone to develop prostate cancer, and mostly the symptoms can be overlapping or may go unnoticeable. Therefore, you must get yourself tested regularly. Maintain a healthy weight and practice habits that are good for your urinary tract. This little gland can cause you great trouble, if left unchecked.
Our urologists urge men over the age of 40 to start with their regular checks which include PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) testing – a blood test to check the levels of this protein.
High levels may indicate an abnormality in cells in the prostate and help prevent or manage the disease early.
