The complications of prostate cancer include: spreading to the nearby organs or travelling through bloodstream or lymphatic system. The treatment of prostate cancer can cause urinary incontinence. The treatment options for prostate cancer depend on factors like the overall health of the individual, how fast the cancer is growing, and how much it has spread.
In case the cancer is diagnosed at a very early stage, the treatment may not be necessary right away. Some of the prostate cancers may never need treatment, so the doctors recommend watchful waiting and that period is called 'active surveillance'. If, the cancer grows during this period then the doctor opts for the treatment of prostate cancer by using radiation therapy, surgery to remove the prostate, freezing prostate tissue and chemotherapy.
There are some alternate prostate cancer treatments that help in de-stressing after the diagnosis; such treatments are meditation, music therapy, exercise, dance, art therapy, spirituality and relaxation technique. The risk of getting prostate cancer can be reduced if you take healthy diet, have healthy food over supplements, exercise and maintain a healthy weight.
