PROSTATE CANCER AND CALCIUM LEVELS
Prostate cancer occurs when cells in the prostate gland grow out of control. There are often no early prostate cancer symptoms, but some men have urinary symptoms and discomfort. Prostate cancer treatment options are surgery, chemotherapy, cryotherapy, hormonal therapy, and/or radiation. In some instances, doctors recommend “watchful waiting.”
Prostate cancer kills thousand of patients every year. I have prostate cancer in my family’s history. My grandfather died in his early 60’s due to prostate cancer which metastasized to other parts of his body.
A new study at Wake Forest University found men who have high blood calcium levels may have an increased risk of developing fatal prostate cancer.
