Prostate Cancer

The Prostate Gland is a part of the male reproductive system. It is a small walnut-sized gland just at the base of the urinary bladder and encompasses the male urethra. It can be easily digitally examined through the rectal passage. Like any other part of the body, cancer can develop in the prostate gland also.

What are the sign and symptoms of prostate cancer?

The symptoms of prostate cancer are the same as that of benign (non-cancerous) enlargement of the prostrate i.e.

  • Weak urinary stream.
  • Straining to pass urine.
  • Getting up frequently in the night to pass urine (nocturia).
  • Sudden strong desire to pass urine (urgency).
  • Leakage of urine before reaching the toilet (urge incontinence).
  • Sense of incomplete emptying after urination.
  • Urinary hesitancy (it takes time before urination starts).
  • Intermittency i.e. urine flow stutters of start /stops.
  • Blood in urine or rarely seen.

How does one diagnose prostate cancer?

Based on your symptoms, your treating urologist will do a physical examination which includes a digital rectal examination to get a feel of the prostate. If the prostate feels hard and/or nodular, the suspicion goes towards the possibility of prostate cancer. This will also order a PSA test to determine whether it is normal (less than 4mg) or high. In case the prostate is hard/ nodular and PSA is high then a trans-rectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy is done to confirm the diagnosis.

How is prostate cancer evaluated?

After the confirmation of diagnosis, a few more tests are required before deciding the treatment protocol. Usually, a PSMA PET scan is done to assess the extent of the disease. Whether it is limited to the prostate gland or it has spread out to involving neighboring organs like seminal vesical, bladder, or rectum. Also, we get to know whether the disease has spread to the bones and or lymph nodes in the body.

What are the stages of prostate cancer?

Based on the imaging studies, biopsy report, and PSA levels prostate cancer is divided into 4 stages:

  • STAGE 1 - only one lobe of the prostate is involved with cancer.
  • STAGE 2 - prostate cancer involves both lobes of the prostate but it has not spread outside the gland.
  • STAGE 3 – the disease has spread outside the gland to involve the nearby organs such as seminal vesicles.
  • STAGE 4 – the disease has spread to other parts of the body such as bones and lymph nodes.
How do you treat prostate cancer?

In the early stage (stages 1 and 2), prostate cancer is curable by performing radical prostatectomy. In later stages, prostate cancer is treated with radiation, hormone therapy (medical or surgical castration), and chemotherapy.
