Artist Yu Tian said in the program that he was found to have prostate cancer at the time of the health examination. He was completely asymptomatic when he found. Once he was found to be in the third stage, he was fortunate to receive a knife to remove the prostate. Chen Yisheng, director of the Department of Urology at Annan Hospital in Tainan City, pointed out that, in fact, Yu Tian's case is not a minority. Prostate cancer occurs in men aged 60 to 75. In recent years, the incidence rate in Western countries was much higher than in Taiwan. The relationship between the popularity of health examinations and outpatient consultations has increased, and about 5,000 new cases are added each year. According to National Health Service statistics, the incidence rate is ranked 5th among male cancers and mortality is male. No. 7 in the middle.
Chen Yisheng said that prostate cancer is different from other cancers. It progresses very slowly. There are very few symptoms before metastasis. Because early detection is difficult, usually related symptoms (such as bone pain) have already been transferred, about one-third . The case was discovered in an advanced stage or even in a distant transfer.
Currently, there is no definitive method or medication that can be prevented for prostate cancer: Chen Yisheng recommends that men have healthy eating and exercise habits; in addition, men over 50 can receive anal and digital PSA ( prostate cancer) every year. Antigen specific) examination, if a family history of prostate cancer can be examined at the age of 45 years in advance in order to early detection of early treatment.
Chen Yisheng said there are many treatment options for prostate cancer. Early (first and second) prostate cancer is limited to the prostate because of the lesion, and can be treated with local or local radiation. The third case (the lesion invades the surrounding tissue) has a high probability of lymphatic metastasis, and if there is the possibility of surgery or radiotherapy, there is still a chance of cure. As for the fourth case, it has been combined with distal metastasis (bone and lymph node), so it can not be cured, and can only rely on hormone therapy to suppress the activity of the cancerous cells.
