MEN'S HEALTH
OVERVIEW:

Men and women each face unique health concerns, and it is important to address many of these concerns separately. Men are especially encouraged to educate themselves about health risks, as there is an overall tendency for men to visit the doctor less frequently than women.


Having regular physical exams in addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise are necessary to maintaining good health.

SOME MAJOR ILLNESS OF MEN:
>-------------------------

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia )(BHP)
This illness is the enlargement of the prostate gland that occurs as men age. BPH is common. About half of all men over 50 years of age experience this problem and some symptoms occur.

It is not clear that BPH is a disease. It may be a natural part of aging process in men. The enlargement is usually harmless, but as the glands gels gets bigger, it may squeeze the urethra causing urinary problems such as:

** Difficulty getting a urine stream started and completely stopped (dribbling).

** A frequent urge to urinate or being awakend at night by the urge to urinate.

** A decreased force of the urine stream.

** A sense that the bladder is not completely empty after urination.

An enlarged prostate can be inconvenient, but it is usually not a serious problem.in a samllnumber of cases, irination may bedome extremely difficult, or backed up urine may cause bladder infections or kidney damage.

A man with BPH may also have irritation to the bladder muscles as the muscles enlarge to compensate for the increased force needed to empty the bladder.this quality of life maybe affected if frequent nightime urination disrupts sleep.

BPH does not cause prostate cancer, and it has no effect on man's ability to have erections or to father children. symptoms of BPH can often be controlled with medications and home treatment. few men have symptoms of complications severe enough to require surgery.

Another name for Prostate Enlargement is BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERTROPHY. urinary sumptoms from prostate enlargement are often called PROSTATISM.

PROSTATE CANCER
---------------

Overview:

Prostate Cancer is a disease in which cancer (malignant) cells are found in the tissues of the prostate gland. the prostate gland creates fluid for semen.

Prostate Cancer is more common in men over 50 years of age. it is the second most common cause of cancer deaths among men. lung cancer is the first. prostate cancer maybe curable if it is discovered early enough.

WHAT CAUSES PROSTATE CANCER?

Experts donot know the excat cause of prostate cancer, but they believe factors such as age and family hisotry may increase your risk of developing the disease.


HOW IS PROSTATE CANCER DIAGNOSED?

the results of a digital rectal exam (DRE) and a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test can indicate that prostate cancer may be present. a biopsy of tissue from the prostate gland is needed to definitively diagnose prostate cancer.

HOW IS PROSTATE CANCER CLASSIFIED

Prostate cancer is classified into two :

GRADE describes how the cancer cells look and act compared to normal prostate cells. the high the Grade, the more likely it is that the cells will grow rapidly and spread to other past of the body (metastasize).

STAGEdescribes how much the cancer has spread.

    Erectile difficulties become more common with increased age. Only 5% of men at age 40 experience difficulties, compared to 20% of men at age 65. The good news is that, nowadays there are a number of ways apart from the impotence drug Viagra available. There are a variety of factors that contribute to impotence. http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com/
