A Prostate “PSA”

Dr_Alisha_MoadabStatistically speaking men often don't go to the doctor unless there is something really wrong. Cancer is one of those things that can go really wrong, but no one goes to the doctor, with the suspicion of cancer, it is often symptoms that deviate from the norm that cause one's alarm to go off.  Cancer can affect various parts of the entire body, for men, the most common being prostate cancer.

Traditionally, screening for prostate cancer starts with a blood test called a PSA: Prostate Specific Antigen. Then depending on if that numeric value is raised outside the normal range, further diagnostics would be used to evaluate it. However, there is controversy on whether they may be more harm than help.

Large organizations such as the US Preventative Services Task Force, the CDC, and the American Cancer Society have all determined that it is best to test per individual basis, rather than the routine PSA screening for men over the age of 50. Some suggest that prostate cancer is slow or non-growing, and more often not life threatening. However if red flags are raised due to elevations in PSA's, the further work up can complicate matters and make them worse.

Here are a few symptoms to keep in mind for men and to seek medical attention for [1]  :

  1. Trouble urinating
  2. Decreased stream of urine outflow
  3. Blood in urine or semen
  4. Swelling in legs
  5. Pain in pelvic area
  6. Pain in bones

Remember to take care of your body, be kind to it. Cancer is a disease in which cells are growing out of control. From a spiritual perspective if you are faced with cancer ask yourself: “ What's eating at you? Deep hurt, secret or grief?” Consider stating this affirmation: “

I lovingly forgive and release all of the past. I choose to fill my life with joy. I love and approve of myself. ” [2]
