THE EARLIER THE BETTER!
If prostate cancer is early regognised, the prospects for cure are very high. The early detection has therefore a substancial significance. (Early recognition of prostate cancer allows for high rates of cure.)
Take prompt precautions (Take advantage of early recognition procedures)
It is generally the case for all cancers: The probability of cure is higher the earlier the disease is
recognised. It is urgently recommended to seek out the doctor immediately in the event of all
unclear symptoms, as well as to regularly take advantage of the precautionary investigations
that are offered!(Oncologists agree: the likelihood for cure is highest when cancer is recognised early. It is urgently recommended you visit your doctor immediately should you notice unclear symptoms. It is also a good idea to regularly take advantage of precautionary investigations and preventive procedures.)
This most frequent male cancer is newly diagnosed in approx. 40.000 German men each year. With targeted preventive examinations, early stages of the illness (disease) can be detected and cured in over 70% of all cases. Unfortunately, so far only about 17% of men take part in such precautions (..take opportunity of preventive medical check-ups.).
The greatest certainty of (for) early detection is currently obtained (possible) with a combination of blood tests (PSA-Test), examinations with palpation( digital rectal examination), and special ultrasound examination through the rectum (rectal ultrasound examination). The
examinations are painless and last only a few minutes. If this results in a suspicion of cancer,
tissue biopsies must be taken from the prostate, which will be examined by pathologists for the
presence of tumour cells (Should the results of your examinations lead to suspicion of cancer then tissue samples of the prostate must be taken and examined by a pathologist for the presence of cancer cells.). The pathological findings, the PSA level, and the findings of the doctors during your examination will then indicate the necessity, type and extent of the treatment that is possibly required.
Again, the same applies:
The earlier the recognition, (not only) the better the prospects for cure and (but) also the simpler and gentler
the treatment that might be required.
