Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Could frequent masturbation increase the risk of prostate cancer?

Could frequent masturbation increase the risk of prostate cancer?

It just doesn't: One of the cults is telling this to young people to frighten them. It's totally made up. These people are rotten. Enjoy your body, and accept the reassurance that it also won't make you demented, bald, infertile or any of the other stuff. Think about something wholesome -- maybe the person that you do / will love -- rather than internet garbage. ...Read more

Cancer: Do men get breast cancer at the same rate of incidence as women during most of their lifetime?

Cancer: Do men get breast cancer at the same rate of incidence as women during most of their lifetime?

No: no the breast cancer in men is significantly less prevalence than women. breast cancer does occur in men. In 2012 it was estimated that 2,190 new cases in males would develop, with 410 deaths. It tends to occur at a later age in men than in women, with the male peak age being 71 years old as opposed to peaks at 51 and 71 years old in women. Some men ignore breast lumps or think they are caused by an infection or some other reason and they do not get medical treatment until the mass has grown significantly. ...Read more

Can masturbation prevent prostate cancer in older men?

Can masturbation prevent prostate cancer in older men?

Probably not: It's not possible to do controlled prospective studies; the last one i saw a few years ago related more frequent ejaculation to less prostate hyperplasia (confirming a traditional idea), but not affecting cancer risk either way. This makes sense biologically. ...Read more

Does smoking increase the chance of getting cervical cancer in women with endemetriosis?

Does smoking increase the chance of getting cervical cancer in women with endemetriosis?

Probably not: Although, smoking increase the risk of many types of cancer, cervical cancer has been shown to be caused almost exclusively by hpv (human papilloma virus) that smoking has nothing to do with. Endometriosis is a disorder of uterine endometrium and that has nothing to do with the cervix either. ...Read more

Does vasectomy increase my risk of prostate cancer?

Does vasectomy increase my risk of prostate cancer?

No, having a vasectomy doesn't increase your risk of prostate cancer: Researchers have conducted many studies on this subject. The best current evidence indicates no increased risk of prostate cancer after vasectomy. If you're concerned about your prostate cancer risk, talk to your doctor about possible symptoms and screening tests. You may have an increased risk of prostate cancer if you're African-American or if you have a close family member with prostate cancer. ...Read more

Can flaxseed reduce the risk of prostate cancer?

Can flaxseed reduce the risk of prostate cancer?

There is no evidence that taking flaxseed can lower your risk of prostate cancer: There have been few studies on this subject, and the evidence is mixed as to whether flaxseed has any effect on the prostate. In one study involving men diagnosed with prostate cancer, those who took a flaxseed supplement and followed a low-fat diet saw their prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels decline. PSA can be a measure of how fast prostate cancer is spreading. Other preliminary studies report that a low-fat diet supplemented with flaxseed reduced PSA levels in men with enlarged prostate glands (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and in those with prostate cancer. However, those results may have been due to a reduction in dietary fats. Other studies have shown either no positive effect or a negative effect of flaxseed — and the alpha-linolenic acid contained in flaxseed — on prostate health. Overall, it remains unclear whether flaxseed or flaxseed oil has a role in the prevention or treatment of prostate cancer. Controlled clinical trials may help determine whether or not it's useful in the long term. ...Read more

Can BPH or enlarged prostate cause prostate cancer in the future?

Can BPH or enlarged prostate cause prostate cancer in the future?

Not actually cause: But these 2 keep company. Big prostates casuse bladder outlet symptoms (frequency, urgency, sleep interrupting need to pee), and this brings men in for checks, include psa. Depending on psa level and rate of change, biopsies are done. Perhaps many can be watched, but obstructive symptms need treatment. Finasteride can be used as a prosca preventitive and shrink prostate over time. ...Read more

Is there evidence to suggest that clomiphene can increase risk of prostate or testicular cancer?

Is there evidence to suggest that clomiphene can increase risk of prostate or testicular cancer?

No: Clomiphene is a hormone that works similarly to estrogen, and is used for infertility to induce ovulation, among other uses. Prostate cancer, the most common cancer in males--reaching about 90% at age 90, is commonly treated with estrogen-type therapy. Testicular ca is rare and occurs in males 20-35 yrs old (guys check regularly). Am not aware of any good evidence of increased risk of any cancers. ...Read more

Why does the incidence of cancer increase dramatically in older people?

Why does the incidence of cancer increase dramatically in older people?

More hits: Weinberg (MIT) demonstrated that except for congenital malignancies, it takes 3 separate hits to induce full malignant transformation. As such contact with a carcinogen may be the first and a viral hit the second. The 3rd hit takes more time. In addition once a cell is malignant it needs immortality by increasing telomerase activity. End effect in older patients. ...Read more

Incidence (Definition)

...That is a measure of the risk of developing some new condition within a certain period of time. The incidence rate is the # of new cases per population that develop a disease over a period of time. So, in a population of 100, if 5 people develop the disease within 5 years, the incidence rate is 5% over 5 years. Compare to 'prevalence', which measures the total # ...Read more
