According to Prostate Cancer Foundation, 1 in 7 American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. This is a serious condition that claims of the lives of thousands every year. What can you do to prevent prostate cancer? Unfortunately, there is little you can do because it can affect men of different ages, ethnicities, and lifestyles. Even worse, there are no obvious symptoms of prostate cancer. That is why it is important for you to visit a urologist to be screened regularly; their medical experience and expertise can identify prostate cancer and help you begin treatment.
That being said, your body often tells you when something is wrong, and that is why you should never ignore 10 symptoms that may point to early prostate cancer.
These signs include: frequent urination, problems urinating, a weak flow of urine, pain or burning sensations when you urinate, difficulty having an erection, difficulty ejaculating, blood in the urine, bloody semen, pain in the genitals, or pain around your pelvis.
While these symptoms may indicate a urinary tract infection or another, less common, condition, these are commonly recognized signs of early prostate cancer. If you experience any of the above signs, visit a urologist right away to determine if you have prostate cancer and to begin treatment as soon as possible.
We recommend that you choose us at the Prostate Cancer Institute for your consultation and treatment. Led by Dr. George M. Suarez, our institute utilizes a unique and effective therapy for prostate cancer called the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or HIFU. This innovate, precise, and safe system uses ultrasound waves to target and eliminate cancer tissue in the prostate while causing minimal, if any, damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
George M. Suarez, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.A.P., educated at Tulane University and Northwestern University, is a board-certified urologist based in Miami, Florida, who has over 20 years of life-saving experience.
