As with so many chronic degenerative diseases seen in modern society, prostate cancer presents a daunting challenge to the clinician. The multifactorial nature of the disease makes effectively addressing it difficult.

Research has been consistently showing the role of zinc Zn in prostate function. In this article, we review the current literature on the anatomy and main functions of the prostate, highlighting the role of zinc. In particular, we will review the etiology of benign prostate enlargement BPH , its prevalence in men over 50, the likelihood of BPH becoming prostate cancer PCa , and explain the relationship of zinc and apoptosis in the prostate cells and the implications for BPH and PCa. We present a model that explains how endogenous factors provoke excretion of zinc or limit zinc absorption, and how exogenous factors like nutrition and drugs regularly used in men over 50 can significantly decrease zinc status and thereby increase the risk of BPH. Finally, we explain how Zn amino acid AA complexes may be capable of avoiding antagonists and inhibitors of zinc absorption, thereby increasing the bioavailability of zinc for the necessary biological processes in the prostate. The prostate is a gland located in the man's pelvic cavity, behind the pubis.
The prostate is both an accessory gland of the male reproductive system and a muscle driven mechanical switch between urination and ejaculation. It is found only in some mammals. It differs between species anatomically, chemically, and physiologically. Anatomically, the prostate is found below the bladder , with the urethra passing through it. It is described in gross anatomy as consisting of lobes, and in microanatomy by zone.

The following information is based on the general experiences of many prostate cancer patients. Your experience may be different. If you have any questions about what prostate cancer treatment services are covered by your health insurance, please contact your health care provider or health insurance provider. This education material was made possible by a Grant from the California Department of Justice, Antitrust Law Section, from litigation settlement funds to benefit Californians diagnosed with cancer or their families. When you have prostate cancer surgery or radiation therapy the muscles that help you control your urine flow may be weakened. When this happens you may have incontinence.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia—also called BPH—is a condition in men in which the prostate gland is enlarged and not cancerous. Benign prostatic hyperplasia is also called benign prostatic hypertrophy or benign prostatic obstruction. The prostate goes through two main growth periods as a man ages. The first occurs early in puberty, when the prostate doubles in size. Benign prostatic hyperplasia often occurs with the second growth phase.
Assessing the risk of prostate cancer in patients with borderline or moderately increased total PSA 4. Prostate-specific antigen PSA is a glycoprotein that is produced by the prostate gland, the lining of the urethra, and the bulbourethral gland. Normally, very little PSA is secreted in the blood. Increases in glandular size and tissue damage caused by benign prostatic hypertrophy, prostatitis, or prostate cancer may increase circulating PSA levels. Most prostate cancers are slow growing, so the utility of prostate cancer screening is marginal in most men with a life expectancy of less than 10 years. When total prostate-specific antigen PSA concentration is below 2.

This blog post was updated on 2nd March to reflect information provided in the comments section. Staggering through the Great Depression and on the brink of war, people danced away their troubles to the latest swing tunes pouring from their newly-acquired radio sets, or piled into cinemas to see the newest offerings from Hollywood. For cancer patients there were few treatments other than surgery or primitive radiotherapy, and the first chemotherapy drugs — developed from the chemicals originally used to make mustard gas — were still at least a decade away. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given this rather dismal backdrop of clinical options, quack cancer cures were flourishing.
