Several ways.: Prostate diseases are diagnosed a number of different ways: by assessing patient symptoms and signs, by physical exam, by imagining such as ct, mri, or ultrasound, cystoscopy, or by biopsy. Assessing severity depends on the type of prostate disease: BPH severity depends on symptoms and cystoscopic findings, cancer depends on biopsy grade & clinical stage, infection depends on symptoms and imaging. ...Read more

Yes they can.: Due to the location of the prostate at the outflow point of the bladder, diseases of the prostate often present as urinary problems. These symptoms are usually quantified by questionnaires which are scored. A common one used by urologists is the international prostate symptom score (ipss or auasi). This is based on 7 questions about urinary symptoms and bother. ...Read more

Once you turn 50, start seeing your physician for colonoscopy and physical exams. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Early detection: There is only one widely used marker for prostate cancer which is psa. Prostate cancer is a potentially devastating disease that is best managed when caught early, a benefit for screening. Prostate cancer in its early stages generally causes no symptoms and thus may only be detected with a blood test or rectal exam. Debate, however, exists for which men should undergo treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Brachytherapy: Radioactice seed implant into the prostate for prostate cancer can result in significant proctitis and flaring of chron's symptoms.

I have definitely not been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Nonetheless, I would like to know whether there is anything that males can do to minimize the risk of developing the disease?
Limited options: There isn't. I am going to assume that you do not want to be a eunuch. All the talk about diet is probably rubbish --the findings are inconsistent, don't make scientific sense, and at least in the case of milk are linked to the vilest politics. It has no link at all to your sex activities. I suggest you get a digital rectal exam yearly and accept that this is not preventable, but often treatable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I did my urine detail and urine culture test.the report is normal that means I don't have any kind of bacterial disease or prostate problem,or stdryt?
Depends on test: A normal urinalysis & urine culture suggests there is no bladder or kidney infection. It is not possible to comment on sexually transmitted diseases, as that requires additional testing & will miss diseases that require blood tests. Total honesty with the physician ordering tests is necessary, to be sure correct tests are ordered. Only barrier protection (condoms) can prevent STD during sex. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If a woman has no prostate. Can her male children inherit gene from her that increases prostate cancer?
I'm a male in my mid 30s and I have a history of prostate cancer in my family, is it too late for me to father children?
No: Ability to procreate depends on production of functional sperm which can be checked for. Functional activity in inducing pregnancy extends into late 70's. History of prostate Ca in family is of little concern other than to periodically check prostate. Probable cause of this tumor is the MMTV virus which also causes breast Ca. Men whose wives have breast Ca have high rate of prostate Ca. ...Read more
I`m 78, had prostate cancer seeded 4 yrs ago. Since aug 2011, psa has risen to 2.35. Taking shots to slow testerone output. What can I do to help my body fight this disease?
Depends on staging: Your treatment options depend on whether there is still persistent cancer in the prostate or whether it is thought to have spread beyond the prostate. If it's still in the prostate you may be a candiate for more local treatment. Multiparametric MRI could be helpful in evaluating whether you have persistent disease in the prostate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

You ICU team of doctors is the most appropriate group to ask this question, specifically the id specialist (if there is one in your institution). ...Read more
My father has been diagnosed with prostate/stomach/lung cancer that is widespread. Is this contagious to my young children or type 1 diabetics?
Several of my family members have cancer of colon, prostate, also lung. I was diagnosed withfibrocystic breast disease. Would I be a high risk?
No: Often there are families that have a number of cancer and their is no obvious correlation. Fibrocyctic disease makes it harder to examine as the breast seems to be lumpy but does not put you at more risk. If there were first degree (mom or sister) or several second degree relatives with breast cancer you would be higher for breast cancer risk. In that case brac genes can be tested. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Frequent Urination. Pee always clear, Interval: 30min-1hr. DOCTOR SAID NO DIABETES, CLEAN URINALYSIS, NO PROSTATE. NO HEART DISEASE. Whats goin on?
Next step: Test urine concentrating ability. Your physician may already have done this. Go without drinking water as long as you can stand it, or overnight, or what seems convenient, and see if you can get urinary SG up to 1.020+. If not, it's renal or pituitary diabetes insipidus. Lots of causes. Otherwise you're thirsty and we're unlikely to discover why. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
