Prostate Cancer

Cancer Care Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer arises from the prostate

gland, the small, walnut-shaped gland

responsible for producing the seminal

fluid that nourishes and transports

sperm.

What is Prostate Cancer?

Prostate cancer usually develops slowly, so there may be no signs for many years but in a small proportion of men, it can grow more swiftly and in some cases spread to other parts of the body, in particular the bones. It is the most common cancer in men in the UK.

PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) is the blood test that may raise the suspicion of prostate cancer. It is a protein made by your prostate gland that is found naturally in the bloodstream, and if levels are higher than normal it can be a sign of prostate cancer. Raised PSA levels are also found in men who don’t have prostate cancer, e.g. due to an inflamed or enlarged prostate.  This is why there is no national screening programme for prostate cancer using PSA tests.

Common risk factors:

  • Age: rare in younger men, increased risk over the age of 50.
  • Family History
  • Diet
  • Weight

Radiotherapy

You may be given radiotherapy to reduce the risk of cancer coming back.

Radiotherapy uses high-energy x-rays to destroy cancer cells. Normal cells can also be damaged by radiotherapy, which may cause side effects. But careful planning and newer ways of giving radiotherapy have reduced the risk of damage to healthy tissue and nearby organs. Cancer cells cannot repair themselves after radiotherapy, but normal cells usually can.
