PROSTATE CANCER ALERT
PROSTATE CANCER IS REAL, DEADLY, AND DANGEROUS AND HAVE KILLED MANY MEN ALL OVER THE WORLD! BUT EARLY DETECTION CAN SAVE MANY MORE LIVES ALL OVER THE WORLD!
I'm deeply concerned hence I have to write this article with the title "Prostate cancer alert!" It is a kind of warning to all men. It is said that "forewarned is forearmed!" This article is made to save many lives all over the world. No man can afford to
ignore all I have written in this article.
Prostate cancer is real and deadly! A few months ago I lost a bosom friend of mine. He was not the first, for many too have died of prostate cancer because of ignorance! It is sad! I want this article to save many lives!
As a boy of 8 years, I ignorantly had the worst experience or the worst incident in my life! I was in the class primary two. I went out of the class to urinate because we had no toilet in the school. While I was urinating, I saw this old guy who was urinating too.
I heard him yelling while urinating and as I observed, there wasn't any drop of urine coming out but he held his manhood and continued to yell and sweat profusely! I quickly ran back to the class and told my fellow pupils to come and see a man who was crying while urinating! I regret that nearly all the pupils ran after me and behold, the man was still there, still having difficulties in urinating.
We ignorantly and innocently laughed at him but he never seemed to notice our presence! We left the man after our teacher came out with cane. I had six lashes of the cane for the incident. However the teacher told us that the man was ill and warned us not to laugh at such incident again.
When I got home I narrated the whole incident to my parents. My father then revealed to me that the man was suffering from what I later realized was prostate cancer. Two days later, my father told me that the man had died! I felt so uncomfortable!
That experience was like a nightmare to me and I will never forget it hence I feel obliged to share the story with you to let you know how dreadful and deadly prostate cancer can be if not detected on time!
WHAT IS PROSTATE?
Prostate is a walnut-sized gland that surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from bladder to the penis.It is located at the base or outlet(neck) of the urinary bladder.It's essential duty or function is to produce semen the fluid in which sperm swim. Semen is also known as the fluid that transports the sperm to assist with reproduction.
When a man is at young age, the normal size of the prostate gland is the size of a walnut. As the man grows into manhood, 20-40, the gland usually grows larger.This process of growing larger is natural! However, it can be unnatural if it continues to grow larger at a fast rate! He may not know this but certain symptoms can trigger this enlargement. If such symptoms continues, he has to see a medical Doctor or his GP. The Doctor will examine him to ascertain if the prostate gland is really enlarged.
HOW DO MEDICAL DOCTORS DETECT THAT ONE'S PROSTATE GLAND IS ENLARGED?
The first thing the GP or medical director will do is gently put a gloved finger into the person's back passage. If he finds that the prostate gland is large,he may recommend a blood test-for specific antigen-PSA which if raised, may indicate the presence of cancer!
If the Doctor is not satisfied with the result,he may then recommend that the person should undergo a biopsy to check if there is a cancerous cells and sometimes a rectal ultrasound.
However, enlarged prostate gland may not always be as a result of cancer. For example, Black people-Afro-Caribbeans and African-Americans are alleged to have large prostate glands.PSA test is still being used to detect cancer until new method is found.
WHAT THEN IS PROSTATE CANCER?
By definition, prostate cancer is a malignant (cancerous) tumour
(growth) that consists of cells from the prostate gland.Generally,the tumour usually grows slowly and remains confined to the gland for many years.
During such time, the tumour produces little or no symptoms or outward signs or (abnormalities on physical examination)Prostate cancer can be deadly and can be one of the most dormant slow growing cancer compared with other types of cancer!
Even though it is regarded as one of the dormant cancers but it can equally be one of the most aggressive types of cancers! When it turns aggressive, it can spread at supersonic speed or spread rapidly. And when it does, it never gives the sufferer a chance to live long!
This is one of the purposes of this article to warn men to take quick and immediate action as soon as any of these symptoms are shown.
