Q: 

How common is prostate cancer in people in their 20''s?

A: not very often. That is why they do not check for it until then but your prostate can be swollen for other reasons causing problems like this. Consult a doctor. Do not worry too much but be active in getting to the root of this so it does not get worse It would be *extremely* unusual for a man to have prostate cancer at 21. You might want to check out this url: http://seer.cancer.gov/statfacts/html/prost.html According to this site (which is about as trustworthy as you''ll find for this kind of information), 0.0% of males diagnosed with PC receive this diagnosis before age 34, and only .6% of males diagnosed with PC receive this news before age 44! That said, you should see a doctor: Have you considered prostatitis? It sounds more like male Chronic Pelvic Pain...


Q: 

What are the odds of surviving Gleason 9 prostate cancer at age 56?

A: The Gleason score "grades" tumors on the basis of how abnormal they look when the tissue is examined under a microscope. The more abnormal they look, the more likely they are to grow fast and to spread to other parts of the body. A grade of less than 4 generally means that cancer cells look similar to normal cells. Grades 5 to 7 fall under the intermediate range. Grades 8 to 10 indicate aggressive growth. survival rate is an average of 5 years.i would have a second opinion,and maybe some more tests such as a cat scan,bone scan(this shows what is called (hot spots) to show advancement and a biopsy to examine types.the grading can get complicated what you do need to ask is what his T-score is or TNM this tells basically if a primary Tumor Localized) n is for spread into lymph Nodes...


Q: 

What are the symptoms of prostate cancer and once detected, what is the survival rate?

A: There are very few specific symptoms of prostate cancer. It usually grows so slowly that a man could die of something else before the cancer showed external symptoms. Difficulties with urination can be an indication of cancer, or it can just be benign hyperplasia (overgrowth) of the prostate. More reliable indicators are calcium deposits or hardening in the prostate (to be found by a digital rectal exam) or a sharp rise in the serum level of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), done by a blood test. That''s how I was diagnosed. I did have other symptoms, such as transient, sharp pain in the ribs, shoulders and other places, and an easily fractured rib, but that was due to metastasis, late in the game. The

Q: 

Large prostate about 100g weight

A: Gary, benign enlargement of the prostate gland (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH) occurs to varying degrees in all men as they age.  The prostate surrounds the urinary canal (urethra) just after its connection to the urinary bladder.  Inward growth of the prostate either into the bladder neck (opening) or into the urethra itself can cause difficulty with urinating.  The prostate is checked by digital examination through the rectum.  This gives the doctor an idea as to the size and benignity of the gland.  However, it does not always correlate to symptoms as a small gland may have significant inward growth and a large glands enlargement may be entirely peripheral.   The ability to urinate involves the urinary bladder muscle...
Q: 

prostatitis treatment!

A: Asghar, although you did not mention your symptoms, symptoms that might occur with prostatitis include frequency of urination, slowing of the urinary stream, burning with voiding or ejaculation, burning in the penile tip unrelated to voiding, sexual dysfunction (such as difficulty with erection), aching in the penis, testicles, and discomfort in the lower abdomen, low back, groin, rectum or perineum (the area between the scrotum and rectum ? betwixt the ?wind and the rain?).  The prostate is the organ that produces the majority of the semen in response to sexual stimulation. At the time of orgasm, the prostate contracts and forces its fluid into the urethra (urinary canal). Too frequent or too infrequent...
Q: 

Testicular Problem - Now urine/prostate issues?

A: Dave, the most common cause of these complaints (other than testicular size) is an inflammation of the prostate gland, so called prostatitis.  symptoms that might occur with prostatitis include frequency of urination, slowing of the urinary stream, burning with voiding or ejaculation, burning in the penile tip unrelated to voiding, sexual dysfunction (such as difficulty with erection), aching in the penis, testicles, and discomfort in the lower abdomen, low back, groin, rectum or perineum (the area between the scrotum and rectum ? betwixt the ?wind and the rain?).    The passage of blood at the initiation or termination of urination or in the semen can also be noted.  During sexual arousal...
Q: 

Can an enlarged prostate turn into cancer?

A: Most men over 50 years of age will suffer from an enlarged prostate at some time in their lives. This means there is an increased growth of tissue in the prostate gland. Doctors call it benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. In benign prostate disease, the cells are normal prostate gland cells and are not cancerous. It is possible for men with BPH to go on to develop prostate cancer as well. But there is no clear evidence to suggest that having BPH leads to, or increases, the risk of prostate cancer. TURP stands for trans urethral resection of the prostate. It is the operation most often done to help relieve the symptoms of BPH. There is information about TURP in the prostate cancer section of CancerHelp UK. The symptoms of BPH happen because...
Q: 

Prostate Cancer/Hytrin

A: I am sorry to hear that your prostate operation for BPH did not work.  It is very uncommon to have to do a TURP following a Greenlight procedure, unless the Greenlight was inadequate.  It is not suprising that the symptoms did not relieve themselves following the TURP since the greenlight failed to relieve them.  I question whether the cause of your symptoms was secondary to obstruction or just overactive bladder.  This would best be decided on a urodynamics evaluation where water is put into the bladder and pressures are measured to see if indeed there is an obstruction causing symptoms.  Prostate Cancer is very common in men over 80 years old and since it was noted only on a TURP specimen...
Q: 

What are symptoms of Prostate Cancer?

A: Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that attacks a manís prostate, which is a small gland shaped like a walnut. This gland is responsible for producing seminal fluid, which is used to transport and support sperm. Although any man can develop prostate cancer, there are certain risk factors that increase a personís likelihood of developing the disease. Men over the age of 50, for example, are at a substantially greater risk of developing prostate cancer. African-American men are also more susceptible, as are men with high levels of testosterone. This is because testosterone stimulates prostate gland growth. Therefore, men who have undergone testosterone therapy or who suffer from hypergonadism are at a greater risk for prostate cancer. Men with high-fat diets or those who are obese also...
Q: 

Side Effects of Radiation For Prostate Cancer?

A: There are two types of radiation therapy treatments for Prostate Cancer. I am giving them below with the side effect of these treatments- 1.External beam radiation treatment uses high-powered X-rays to kill cancer cells. This type of radiation is effective at destroying cancerous cells, but it can also scar adjacent healthy tissue. Side effects - * Urinary problems. The most common signs and symptoms are urgency to urinate and frequent urination. These problems usually are temporary and gradually diminish in a few weeks after completing treatment. Long-term problems are uncommon. * Loose stools, rectal bleeding, discomfort during bowel movements or a sense of needing to have a bowel movement (rectal urgency). In some cases these problems persist for months...
