Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is marked annually in November. This is in an effort to promote awareness, end stigmatisation and provide information to those suffering from the illness or those in the know of someone who is.
Prostate Cancer Statistics
Research indicates that about 1 in every 7 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in their lifetime. The illness is predominant for men over 40 and can often be a serious disease. However, the disease progresses very slowly, and often goes unnoticed, with many men dying of old age and only discovered to have had it after the conduction of an autopsy.
Risk Factors of Prostate Cancer
Like many types of cancer, the exact cause of Prostate Cancer hasn’t been determined yet. The risk factors for the slower-growing types of Prostate Cancer include: family history, age, race, date and sometimes geographical location. For the more aggressive types of the illness, the risk factors include: smoking, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.
The most common treatment options for men with Prostate Cancer include surgery and chemotherapy. However, many patients are now seeking options that are less invasive to the immune system and have fewer side effects.
At Verita Life, we provide a wide variety of Integrative Treatments that deal with the cancer directly while still maintaining one’s immune system. Each treatment is customised to the individual patient’s needs by our very professional, experienced and caring doctors.
