Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 At the start, prostate cancer does not cause symptoms. As the cancer grows, you may have trouble urinating. Some men need to urinate often, especially at night. Others have pain or burning during urination, blood in the urine or semen, pain in the back, hips, or pelvis, and painful ejaculation. To find out if these symptoms are caused by prostate cancer, your doctor will ask about your past medical problems and your family's medical history. He or she will perform a physical exam. During the exam, your doctor will put a gloved finger into your rectum to feel your prostate for hard or lumpy areas. Your doctor may also do a blood test to check the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level. PSA levels can be high in men with an enlarged prostate gland or with prostate cancer. You may also need an ultrasound exam that takes computer pictures of the prostate. If tests show that you might have cancer, your doctor will want to confirm this with a biopsy. He or she will take out tiny pieces of the prostate to look for cancer cells. Your doctor may want to do a biopsy again to re-check the results. If an abnormality is detected on a DRE or PSA test, your doctor may recommend tests to determine whether you have prostate cancer, such as: Ultrasound. If other tests raise concerns, your doctor may use transrectal ultrasound to further evaluate your prostate. A small probe, about the size and shape of a cigar, is inserted into your rectum. The probe uses sound waves to make a picture of your prostate gland. Collecting a sample of prostate tissue. If initial test results suggest prostate cancer, your doctor may recommend a procedure to collect a sample of cells from your prostate prostate biopsy. Prostate biopsy is often done using a thin needle that's inserted into the prostate to collect tissue. The tissue sample is analyzed in a lab to determine whether cancer cells are present.

The diagnosis of prostate cancer most commonly involves a combination of three tests: Digital rectal examination DRE As part of a physical examination your doctor inserts a gloved and lubricated finger into your rectum and feels toward the front of your body. The prostate gland is a walnut or larger sized gland immediately in front of the rectum, and beneath your bladder. The back portion of prostate gland can be felt in this manner. Findings on this exam are compared to notes about the patient's prior digital rectal examinations. The exam is usually brief, and most find it uncomfortable due to the pressure used to adequately examine the prostate gland. Findings such as abnormal size, lumps, or nodules, may indicate prostate cancer. The national comprehensive cancer network NCCN notes that a DRE should not be used as a stand-alone test for detection of prostate cancer but should be performed in men with an elevated PSA. The NCCN also notes that DRE may be considered as a baseline test in all patients, as it may help identify high-grade cancers associated with a normal PSA. Prostate specific antigen PSA blood test: The PSA blood test measures the level of a protein found in the blood that is produced by the prostate gland and helps keep semen in liquid form. The PSA test can indicate an increased likelihood of prostate cancer if the PSA is at an increased or elevated level, but it does not provide a definitive diagnosis. Prostate cancer can be found in patients with a low PSA level but this occurs less than 20% of the time. If the PSA level is elevated levels can depend upon your age, on the size of your prostate gland on examination, certain medications you may be taking, or recent sexual activity, further testing may be needed to rule out prostate cancer. PSA measurements are often tracked over time to look for evidence of a change. The amount of time it takes for the PSA level to increase is referred to as PSA velocity. The time it takes for the PSA to doubl

A prostate infection diagnosis is based on your medical history, a physical exam, and medical tests. Your doctor can also rule out other serious conditions such as prostate cancer during the exam. During a physical exam, your doctor will conduct a digital rectal exam to test your prostate and will look for: discharge enlarged or tender lymph nodes in the groin swollen or tender scrotum Your doctor may also ask about your symptoms, recent UTIs, and medications or supplements you’re taking. Other medical tests that can help your diagnosis and treatment plan include: urinalysis or semen analysis, to look for infections a prostate biopsy or a blood test for prostate-specific antigen (PSA) urodynamic tests, to see how your bladder and urethra store urine cystoscopy, to look inside the urethra and bladder for blockage Your doctor may also order an ultrasound to get a closer look. The cause will help determine the correct course of treatment.

The precise diagnosis of liver disease involves a history and physical examination performed by a health care professional. Understanding the symptoms and the patient's risk factors for liver disease will help guide any diagnostic tests that may be considered. Sometimes history is difficult, especially in patients who abuse alcohol. These patients tend to minimize their consumption, and it is often family members who are able to provide the correct information. Liver disease can have physical findings that affect almost all body systems including the heart, lungs, abdomen, skin, brain and cognitive function, and other parts of the nervous system. The physical examination often requires evaluation of the entire body. Blood tests are helpful in assessing liver inflammation and function. Specific liver function blood tests include: AST and ALT ( transaminase chemicals released with liver cell inflammation); GGT and alkaline phosphatase (chemicals released by cells lining the bile ducts); bilirubin; and protein and albumin levels.

Many people may not realize that cancer research studies are not just for cancer patients. People who have not been diagnosed with cancer and those who have successfully completed cancer treatment are excellent potential candidates for cancer prevention studies.

Transcript by Newsy**** BY JENNIFER MECKLES You're watching multisource health news analysis from Newsy She was just a toddler, facing an impossible situation. Diagnosed at two, treated at three, and now at 4 years old, Aleisha Hunter has beaten breast cancer. Her mother tells NBC how it all started... MELANIE HUNTER: “I noticed when she was two and a half, she had a small lump on her left breast.” Doctors diagnosed Aleisha with Juvenile Breast Carcinoma. It is extremely rare -- only a few hundred cases have ever been documented. Doctors performed a “radical modified mastectomy” to fight the tumor -- removing her nipple, areola, breast tissue and the lymph nodes under her arm. Aleisha’s case stunned everyone, including her surgeon Dr. Nancy Down. She tells the Daily Mail: “We were so shocked when the diagnosis was made... I've been dealing with breast cancer cases for 25 years and have never come across a patient this young. She is the youngest known case in the world.” Media outlets used Aleisha’s story as a starting point for more in-depth discussions about the disease. An Atlanta-based oncologist lists the alarming statistics of breast cancer on CNN. “Fewer than 5 percent of invasive breast cancers occur in women under age 40, according to The National Institute for Health... About 12.2 percent of women born today will get a breast cancer diagnosis at some time in their lives, according to The National Cancer Institute.” Aleisha’s story also reminded some in the media of similar miraculous survival stories. ABC reports Hannah Powell-Auslam was just ten years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. She endured both chemotherapy and a mastectomy. HANNAH POWELLL-AUSLAM: “I feel like a kid inside, but sometimes I feel like an adult - when I’m always at the hospital.” (ABC) And some media members used the story as an education opportunity, like this Babble blogger. “Girls need to learn about breast cancer from as soon as they are old enough to understand... I always figured puberty was a good age to start, but this story reminds me that puberty is too late... It’s vital to teach our children (boys and girls) that lumps of any kind should be shown to mom or dad, and pain should always be reported. Hannah and Aleisha will undergo reconstructive surgery when they reach puberty. Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy

BY TRACY PFEIFFER Anchor: Ana Compain-Romero You're watching multisource health news analysis from Newsy Scientists in Cyprus, say they’re close to full development of a new test for Down syndrome in the womb -- and medical professionals are calling it a game changer. The new procedure analyzes a pregnant mother’s blood for differences between her DNA and the DNA of her fetus. Down syndrome results from an extra copy of chromosome 21, and is a common cause of mental retardation. (Video: WTXF) Currently, the only way to diagnose Down syndrome before birth is through a process called amniocentesis. Though most women forgo that test. A writer for Technorati explains why. “Tested at 15-16 weeks gestation, a needle is inserted into the mother’s uterus and amniotic fluid is extracted. As a result, 1 in 100 pregnancies will end in miscarriage.” On Philadelphia Fox affiliate WTXF, one doctor can barely conceal his excitement. Dr. MIKE CIRIGLIANO: “A blood test! Is that cool? That is really cool.” Anchor: “That is amazing.” Dr. MIKE CIRIGLIANO: “Having gone through this again with my own wife -- Do you want to have an amniocentesis? There are risks associated, but you want to know.” Anchor: “Sure.” Dr. MIKE CIRIGLIANO: “And so, this could be a sea change.” But a writer for Care2 reports 90 to 95 percent of women terminate their pregnancies after a Down syndrome diagnosis, so while the new test is exciting -- it also raises some high-stakes ethical questions. “The parents of disabled children tend to say ... their love for their child has far outweighed the difficulties. At the same time, however, making sure that children with Down's Syndrome ... have a positive, supported life does require a significant commitment on the part of the parents, both emotional and financial.” Finally, a doctor from Boston’s Children’s Hospital is optimistic about the issue -- hoping potential parents are aware of growing societal support for people with Down syndrome and their families. Dr. BRIAN SKOTKO: “What I also envision is a world where people with Down syndrome continue to prove that they can succeed and they’re important contributors to their local communities. I think the challenge is, how do you convey these new possibilities into the prenatal discussions that are coming around the corner so that mothers and fathers can make an informed decision?” The researchers behind the study say they aren’t ready to roll out the test just yet, but hope to have it on the market within one to two years.

BY MOLLY BOLAND ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO You're watching multisource global video news analysis from Newsy Sexual orientation and cancer survival rates could be related. Researchers at the Boston University School of Public Health studied survey data and found gay men were nearly twice as likely to have been diagnosed with cancer than straight men. “They also got sick ten years younger than straight men.” “The researchers in the study say gay men and lesbian women are more likely to smoke and abuse alcohol than straight men and women. They’re also less likely to see their doctor for routine physicals or cancer screenings.” (WMAQ) Researchers say it cannot be proven gay men are at greater risk for developing cancer. According to MSNBC - experts say smoking is definitely a factor. One study researcher notes HIV could provide another explanation. “ men are more likely than straight men to be HIV positive. Therefore, HIV-positive gay men are at a higher risk for anal, lung and testicular cancers and Hodgkin's lymphoma than people who are HIV negative...” Researchers didn’t find the same to be true among lesbian and bisexual women -- but the study did find they’re more likely to report poor health after cancer treatment. One lesbian health advocate shared some explanations for this find with MyHealthNewsDaily. “It's not that lesbian or bisexual women walk around more depressed than their straight peers... But coming out to each new person … takes a lot of energy... For some, it's easier to stay silent ... for fear that they will be met with a negative reaction..." And a writer at Philly Magazine agrees -calling the absent regular medical screenings, “ issue that may be impacted by a lack of tolerance among many medical providers when it comes to sexual identity.” The San Diego Gay and Lesbian News highlights the study as an opportunity to identify programs necessary to care for lesbian, gay and bisexual cancer survivors.
