MONTREAL, QC, CANADA, September 11, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — To help men make informed decisions about their health, September is recognized as Prostate Health Month. Throughout September, health advocates focus on increasing awareness about prostate cancer and other prostate related ailments and advances in their treatments. This includes having one’s prostate examined with a DRE (digital rectal exam), and getting a PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood test.
The prostate health month initiative also aims to encourage men to prioritize their prostate health by proactively seek early detection and treatment for related health issues that affect them specifically, such as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), highlighting the importance of preventative measures and the promotion of their overall well-being.
DID YOU KNOW…
A prostate screening can detect undiagnosed prostate cancer in someone who may not have any symptoms. They are crucial to have so that men can catch any signs of prostate cancer early on. Nearly 100% of people with prostate cancer will survive at least 5 years after their diagnosis … if the cancer is caught early. Early detection is as simple as a 30-second digital prostate exam and a single PSA blood test. But if it’s diagnosed late, just 3 in 10 people are expected to survive five years.
A prostate examination, along with careful history taking, and taking the IPSS (international prostate symptom score) questionnaire , can also help doctors diagnose Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland, and it is the most common benign tumor found in men. In this condition, the enlarged prostate enlarges may compress the urethra, causing problems urinating. BPH can in turn cause various urinary symptoms, known collectively as lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Treatments may include front line medications, minimally invasive surgical therapies such as REZUM, iTind, Optilume or Urolift, or advanced surgery – including laser treatments (Greenlight) and robotic-precision Aquablation.
