World's Most Advanced Medical Treatment in India - Get free Expert Medical Opinion and Treatment Estimate Cost Risk Factors and Prevention for prostate cancer - Low Cost Prostate Cancer Surgery in India A risk factor is anything that increases a person’s chance of developing a disease, including cancer. There are risk factors that can be controlled, such as smoking, and risk factors that cannot be controlled, such as age and family history. Although risk factors can influence disease, for many risk factors it is not known whether they actually cause the disease directly. Some people with several risk factors never develop the disease, while others with no known risk factors do. However, knowing your risk
  2. 2. factors and communicating them to your doctor may help you make more informed lifestyle and health-care choices. Since the exact cause of prostate cancer is still unknown, it is also unknown how to prevent prostate cancer. The following factors can raise a person’s risk of developing prostate cancer: Age. The risk of prostate cancer increases with age, rising rapidly after age 50. More than 80% of prostate cancers are diagnosed in men who are 65 years old or older. Race/ethnicity. Black men are at higher risk for prostate cancer than white men. They are more likely to develop prostate cancer at an earlier age and to have aggressive, fast-growing tumors. Prostate cancer occurs most often in North America and northern Europe and is less common in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Of importance, it appears that its frequency is increasing in Asian populations living in urbanized environments, such as Hong Kong, Singapore, and North American/European cities. Family history. A man who has a father or brother with prostate cancer has a higher risk of developing the disease than a man who does not. Researchers have discovered specific genes that may possibly be associated with prostate cancer, although these have not yet been shown to cause prostate cancer or to be specific to this disease. Diet. No study has shown conclusively that diet can directly influence the development of prostate cancer, but many studies have indicated there may be a link. There is not enough information yet to make clear recommendations about the role diet plays in prostate cancer, but the following may be helpful: A diet high in fat, especially animal fat, may increase prostate cancer risk. In fact, many doctors believe that a low-fat diet may help to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
  3. 3. A diet high in vegetables, fruits, and legumes (beans and peas) may decrease risk of prostate cancer. It is unclear which nutrients are directly responsible, but lycopene, found in tomatoes and other vegetables, may slow or prevent cancer growth. A low-fat diet that is high in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure and the risk of heart disease, with no evidence that such a diet causes harm. Selenium, an element humans get in trace amounts from food and water, may play a role in lowering the risk of prostate and other cancers. Selenium is currently being tested in clinical trials and has not yet been proven to alter risk. It has been suggested that vitamin E may help to reduce the risk of prostate cancer; this is currently being tested in clinical trials and has not yet been proven to alter risk. In some studies of vitamin E in other settings, it has been suggested that there may be inherent cardiovascular risks (for example, an increased chance of having cardiac or blood vessel problems) with the use of high doses of vitamin E, and final judgment on the use of this supplement will require the completion of ongoing clinical trials. Hormones. High levels of testosterone (a male sex hormone) may speed up or cause the development of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer does not develop in men who, for other reasons, were castrated (the removal of the testes) before puberty and whose bodies no longer make testosterone. Stopping the body’s production of testosterone, called androgen deprivation therapy, or castration, often treats advanced prostate cancer. Symptoms Often, prostate cancer is discovered through a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test or digital rectal examination (DRE) in otherwise healthy men who have not had any symptoms. (Both tests are described in Diagnosis.) When prostate cancer does cause symptoms, the following symptoms may occur. Sometimes, people with prostate cancer do not show any of these symptoms. Or, these symptoms may be caused a medical condition that is not cancer. If you are concerned about a symptom on this list, please talk with your doctor.
  4. 4. Frequent urination Pain or burning during urination Weak or interrupted urine flow Blood in the urine The urge to urinate frequently at night None of these symptoms is specific to prostate cancer. The same symptoms occur in men who have a noncancerous condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlarged prostate. Urinary symptoms also can indicate an infection or other conditions. If cancer has spread beyond the prostate gland, a man may experience: Pain in the back, hips, thighs, shoulders, or other bones Unexplained weight loss Fatigue Other symptoms that arise at the site of cancer growth Age and medical condition The type of cancer Severity of symptoms Previous test results Cost Estimate for Prostate Cancer Surgery at World Best Hospital in India Cost Estimate for Robotic Prostate Cancer Surgery at World Class Hospital in India is $ 9000 US Dollars Cost Estimate for Laproscopic Radical Prostatectomy Surgery at World Class Hospital in India is $ 7000 US Dollars Note: Cost Estimate for above include stay in a Private Room where a Companion can stay with the patient surgeon fee, medicines and consumables, nursing care, food and Airport Pick & Drop.
