Where Does Prostate Cancer Spread To?

Overview of prostate cancer

As men age, the prostate cancer growth, eighty years of age to check for prostate cancer generally occurs in patients with cancer lesions, but the actual clinical onset is much lower than this number, prostate cancer is one of the main men in Europe cancer deaths. There are significant regional and ethnic differences in the incidence of prostate cancer, according to statistics the Chinese people minimum, maximum Europeans, Africa and Israel, intermediate, and Japan and other countries of prostate cancer of low-prone areas, but there was no choice in men over the age of 50 autopsy prostate biopsy sections found that the potential number of cancer lesions similar to the U.S. and Europe, so some people think Asians than Westerners slow cancer growth, fewer clinical cases. Also the relationship between prostate cancer and the environment also.

Second, the proliferation of prostate cancer genetic markers

Scientists have confirmed that there are some genetic markers that can help us determine whether the proliferation of prostate cancer will occur, or will be confined to the prostate. Such studies will eventually be able to help doctors and patients decide which treatment best take. Compared with advanced prostate cancer, there are obvious limitations of genetic differences in prostate cancer within the prostate.

Many prostate cancer patients may have no symptoms for years, but the other part of the lesion in patients with advanced prostate cancer will progress rapidly. In the United States resulted in men with prostate cancer is the second cause of death, but the choice of the appropriate method of treatment is very difficult. Sometimes, prostate cancer can spread to other parts of the body, making treatment very difficult. But other lesions in patients with prostate cancer is confined to the prostate internally. Some of prostate cancer treatment is effective, but may cause long-term adverse effects, including impotence and incontinence. Plays a very important role in the process of tumor development and progression of these genes exist in chromosomal regions.

Third, the proliferation of drugs to prevent prostate cancer

Early detection of prostate cancer, such as testosterone rely on male hormones like growth phase of cancer in this way is the use of drugs that inhibit or block the effect of hormones on the cancer cells, but anti-hormone therapy to slow the spread of cancer, However, cancer cells will gradually become more rely on hormones, but to make the cancer cells more vitality.    

Anti-hormonal therapy for early detection of prostate cancer cells inhibited effective, but for advanced prostate cancer found invalid, even if the drug treatment of advanced cancer can usually pharmaceutical ingredients also has considerable toxicity, not necessarily effective, and therefore it is expected to slow down the process of cancer which no longer rely on growth hormone.
Component of anti-inflammatory drugs have been shown to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells, but both have cardiovascular side effects, so the group decided to combination therapy as a research direction, under the same understanding of the effect of the two drugs to enhance the inhibition of cancer development, and two drugs in order to reduce the side effects of the reduction of the two drugs.
After two years of using a single drug, two different combinations of drugs and other medication animal experiments, experts pointed out that experiments confirmed that the two drugs to reduce weight, while medication, comparing a single high dose of medication, show significant results.

Fourth, the proliferation of food to prevent prostate cancer

1. Soybean
Soy contains an antioxidant called genistein almost completely curb the proliferation of prostate cancer cells in mice. Northwestern University researchers experiments in mice showed that mice taking genistein chance of prostate cancer metastasis to the lungs reduced by 96%. Genistein content used in the experiment it is equivalent to the amount of people from rich soy meal diet intake.

In stopping the proliferation of prostate cancer cells, genistein might be able to produce a certain effect. Although genistein does not make prostate tumors smaller, but it's almost completely prevented prostate cancer metastasis to the lungs.

2. Tea

Multifaceted protective effects of tea on human health has been brought well known. Black and green tea have the effect of slowing the proliferation of prostate cancer, and antioxidants of red wine and peanuts are rich inside but can not produce effective anti-cancer effect.

Tea polyphenols in prostate cancer cell growth inhibition. The effect of black tea better. In countries like tea drinking, the incidence of certain cancers is relatively low. Meanwhile, recent scientific studies show that not all polyphenols can produce anti-cancer effects. For example, resveratrol edge A is present in red wine and peanuts in polyphenols can not produce the same anti-cancer effect.

Hormone Injection For Prostate Cancer

Prostate cells require male hormones testosterone, called Androgens, to develop and function normally. The objective of Hormone Injection is to minimise the amount of male hormones in the body so that prostate cells are not caused to grow. So lowering the amount of testosterone in the body can reduce the chance of an early prostate cancer coming back after treatment. Or it can shrink an advanced prostate tumour down or slow its growth.

Hormone injection therapy depends on the grade and stage of your cancer. Doctor may suggest hormone treatment alone if your cancer has spread to another part of the body. Or they may suggest it if the cancer has grown too far around the prostate for successful treatment with surgery or radiotherapy. It may also be use before radiation to try to shrink the cancer to make treatment more effective.

Hormone injection medicines reduces the production of the male hormone, testosterone, from the testicles. These medicines are given by injection into a muscle every few months.

Possible side effects include:
1. Impotence
2. Hot flashes
3. Loss of sexual desire
4. Osteoporosis
5. Fatigue
6. Weight gain
7. Strength and muscle loss
8. Breast swelling and tenderness
9. Loss of body hair
10. Bone thinning
11. Memory and concentration problems
12. Changes to your mood.
13. Increased risk of heart disease and diabetes

The side effects are caused by lowered testosterone levels. They usually last for as long as you’re on hormone injection therapy. If you stop your hormone injection therapy, your testosterone levels will gradually rise and the side effects should improve. But this might take several months

Hormone injection may control the cancer for a few years then the cancer usually will stops responding to the hormone injection treatment and starts to grow again.
