Prostate cancer
Published by BUPA's Health Information Team
November 2003 The prostate is a gland found only in men that produces the liquid component of semen. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men (after lung cancer), though it mainly affects older men. Caught at an early stage, there is a good chance it can be cured, with treatments tailored to the individual patient and his particular cancer.
The prostate
The prostate is about the size of a walnut and is located just below the bladder. It surrounds the tube that carries urine from the bladder and out through the penis (the urethra). See the diagram, below.
The male urinary tract
Changes to the prostate
Normally, cells grow and multiply only when the body needs them to. Cancer develops as a result of a breakdown in this process, leading to cells growing in an uncontrolled way. The mass of excess cells forms a tumour (growth), which may be benign or malignant. The tumour is described as malignant if it is able to invade other healthy tissue.

What is HIFU?
HIFU, which stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound , was first developed as a treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and now is also being used as a procedure for the killing of prostate cancer cells. As shown in Figure 1, this procedure utilizes transrectal ultrasound radiation ), tissue in the entry and exit path of the HIFU beam is not injured. Figure 1 The published clinical experience with HIFU for this application is limited and only extends out to 5 years, and the procedure is not yet approved by the FDA for use in the United States , (HIFU is approved in Europe, China, Japan, Caribbean, Mexico, and Latin America). However, HIFU offers a powerful advantage over radiation treatment: The control and precision of HIFU allow the accomplished surgeon to accurately target the tissue to be destroyed without injuring adjacent tissue. HIFU destroys tissue by heat, rather than by cavitation or mechanical shearing forces.

The prostate
The prostate is a gland in a man's reproductive system. It makes and stores seminal fluid , a milky fluid that nourishes sperm. This fluid is released to form part of semen. The prostate is about the size of a walnut. It is located below the urinary bladder and in front of the rectum . It surrounds the upper part of the urethra , the tube that empties urine from the bladder. If the prostate grows too large, the flow of urine can be slowed or stopped.

Past Highlights What is screening? Screening is looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms . This can help find cancer at an early stage . When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread. Scientists are trying to better understand which people are more likely to get certain types of cancer. They also study the things we do and the things around us to see if they cause cancer. This information helps doctors recommend who should be screened for cancer, which screening tests should be used, and how often the tests should be done. It is important to remember that your doctor does not necessarily think you have cancer if he or she suggests a screening test. Screening tests are given when you have no cancer symptoms. Screening tests may be repeated on a regular basis.

WHAT IS THE MALE HEALTH CENTER? The Male Health Center was the first center in the United States specializing in male health. The Male Health Center is located in Dallas, Texas, and attracts hundreds of patients from across the United States.
The Male Health Center was founded in 1989 by Dr. Kenneth A. Goldberg, a board-certified urologist. Dr. Goldberg created the center because there was a need to provide men with an integrated system of care that addressed all their needs.
Men need an Ob/Gyn doctor of their own, too
Women depend on their Ob/Gyn specialists for female problems, and learn the benefits of early detection for breast cancer through self-exams. Men, on the other hand, often ignore warning signs and symptoms until the problem becomes serious. Few men know where to go when they find a lump on a testicle or have trouble achieving an erection.
While the Ob/Gyn physician is trained to treat female problems, there is really no physician specialty trained to deal with the wide variety of problems that face the man.

What is prostate cancer?
Cancer is when cells in the body grow out of control. Prostate cancer is a group of abnormal cells in the prostate. Prostate cancer can be aggressive, which means it grows quickly and spreads to other parts of the body. (When cancer spreads, doctors say the cancer has "metastasized.") Patients with slow-growing cancer can expect to live as long as men who do not have cancer. Most patients with slow-growing cancer will never have symptoms. Three out of four cases of prostate cancer are of the slow-growing type that is relatively harmless. Return to top

Study: Radiation is better with drugs in early prostate cancer
CHICAGO (AP) Prostate cancer patients whose disease has not spread fare significantly better if treated with a combination of radiation and hormone-blocking drugs than with radiation alone, a new study suggests. Similar results were found in a previous study comparing the two treatments in men with more advanced cancer.

What are some of the treatment options for prostate cancer?
The treatment options for prostate cancer depend in part on whether the tumor has spread. For tumors that are still inside the prostate, radiation therapy (using x-rays that kill the cancer cells) and a surgery called radical prostatectomy are common treatment options. "Watchful waiting" is also a treatment option. In this approach, no treatment is given until the tumor gets bigger. Watchful waiting may be the best choice for an older man who has a higher risk of dying from something other than his prostate cancer. Generally, tumors that have grown beyond the edge of the prostate can't be cured with either radiation or surgery. They can be treated with hormones that slow the cancer's growth.
