One of the most difficult types of cancer to be detected in the early stage is prostate cancer. It cannot be stopped as early as possible because the symptoms that accompany this disease are not shown immediately. Almost most of the men who started to notice symptoms, noticed them when the disease has started to spread.
If anyone wants to detect this illness in its early stage, he has to do regular examinations yearly. Self-examination is also an option which can be very helpful.
Here we are presenting you the twelve early symptoms of prostate cancer which no men should ignore them:
- Frequent urinating especially during the night
- Occurrence of difficulties when urinating meaning trouble starting and stopping while urinating
- Change of urine color and weak stream of it. You may experience tingling, but this is a symptom also for many other diseases
- Occurrence of blood in the sperm
- Occurrence of blood in urine (hematuria)
- Appearance of unpleasant feeling when starting to urinate or a feeling that you need to hold back a bit when urinating
- Occurrence of swellings and pain in the thighs, hips, and lower back
- Persistent bone pain that does not go away, or results in fractures
- Pain in the pelvic area
- Ejaculation issues
- Pain or burning feeling when urinating
These same symptoms also appear when there is a blockage in the prostate, so they are not always connected with prostate cancer. Some of them may occur as a result of extended prostate or some urinary tract illness. For you, it’s the most important thing to visit a doctor so that he/she can determine a diagnosis. When the prostate cancer starts to spread more progressively, it shows similar symptoms with other types of tumors, including: nausea, fatigue, sudden weight loss, loss of appetite, and leg swelling.
Luckily for you, there are numerous natural remedies that can help you and here, we’re going to present you some of them!
POTENT NATURAL REMEDIES
Prostate cancer can be prevented if healthy foods are introduced in everyday life, and if new lifestyle habits are accepted. Here are some of the most effective natural remedies that can help you achieve that:
Recent studies claim that kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage can hinder the development of prostate cancer. You can include them in salads, soups, stir-fry’s, juices, and consume them regularly.
Green tea catechins may prevent the development of cancer cells according to some studies.Only one cup of green tea in the morning can improve your health and promote healthier circulation. The optimal results will be achieved by drinking 1 cup of green tea 3 times each day.
Consuming sufficient amount of lycopene may help lower the risk of prostate cancer. It can also be found in watermelon, tomatoes, raspberries, and other red vegetables and fruits. Try to consume cooked tomato products.
Flax seeds are rich with Omega-3’s and they are very effective in the prevention of this disease. This dietary supplement aside omega-3 fatty acids contains compounds called lignans that modulate hormone metabolism, hinder angiogenesis and fight free radicals. It is recommended consuming a 1/4 cup of freshly ground flax each day.
James Howenstine in his book, “A Physicians Guide to Natural Health Products That Work” presents studies which revealed that patients getting selenium had a 67% reduction in cancer of the prostate, a 58% reduction in colon or rectal cancer, and a 45% reduction in lung cancer.
Selenium is a very powerful anti-oxidant contained in garlic, pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts, broccoli, and whole grains.
Only 10 to 15 minutes of exposure to sunrays will help you in the prevention of prostate cancer. Sun is the best source of vitamin D.
According to some new studies, men with higher levels of Vitamin D in their blood were less likely to develop aggressive forms of the cancer contrary to the ones with lower amounts of the vitamin and the chances of prostate cancer occurrence were lowered to 50%. Moderate sunlight exposure can also prevent other types of cancer, like for example breast cancer. Vitamin D is also included in some vegetables and leafy greens, and also in some dairy products.
