Is it possible a Prevention of Prostate Cancer? If yes, what measures do I need to take to prevent prostate cancer onset? How far preventing prostate cancer can save my life?
I may understand that these are some worrisome coming into your mind. But of course : preventing is better than curing. And the same happens for prostate cancer too.
What is more, cooking manners have their influence too. So, if you prepare your meat on high temperature with charcoal grills, this is risky because charcoal grills carry several carcinogens leading to high prostate cancer rate.
When coming to antioxidants, they work as scavengers in the body and do not allow the toxins to get deposit inside your body. According to recent reports, all these antioxidants play a protective role in prevention of prostate cancer battle.
All these conditions increase more chances of secreting poisonous substances. On the other hand, these poisonous substances generate more chances in producing carcinoma including prostate cancer too.
The male hormone called Androgen may also play a role in increasing the prostate cancer risk. It has been noticed that prostate cancer is less susceptible in castrated men, although this might not been proved directly.
Well, it not a wise suggestion to get one self castrated but hyper secretion of androgen can be prevented with some other measures.

If it comes out and diagnosed with prostate cancer, please follow your doctor's advices about the therapy regimen most suitable for you.
Some authorities advocate the initiation of therapy even in asymptomatic cases of prostate cancer with the only aim to extend the life expectancy of the patients.
It's true that sometimes the prostate cancer is detected accidentally at the old age. And the main protocol used in this case is “wait and watch”.
