What is Prostate cancer?
Prostate cancer develops when abnormal cells in the prostate gland grow more quicker than in a normal prostate, forming a malignant tumour. Most prostate cancers grow slower than other types of cancer.
- As you get older – it mainly affects men over 65
- If your father or brother has / had prostate cancer
- If you have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer
Most prostate cancer cases in Malaysia were discovered at a late age in men (mostly are diagnosed after the age of 65) and out of all these cases, 60% were detected at late stages (Stage 3 & 4). This is because the signs & symptoms for prostate cancer are not seen in early stages unless specific screening tests are conducted for early detection.
- Blood in urine
- Frequent urination
- Weak or interrupted urine flow or the need to strain to empty the bladder
- Pain or burning during urination
PSA is a protein produced by normal, as well as malignant cells of the prostate gland. The PSA test measures the level of PSA in a man’s blood. The blood level of PSA is often elevated in men with prostate cancer.
An ultrasound helps to see the patient’s prostate gland and to help diagnose symptoms such as difficulty in urinating or an elevated PSA protein in the blood. It’s also used to investigate a nodule found during a rectal exam, detect abnormalities and determine whether the gland is enlarged.
