Asking Your Doctor the Right Questions About Prostate Cancer

Regular communication with a doctor is a useful way for older men to gain valuable information about what they can do to learn more about prostate cancer, and learn ways they can lower their risk of dieing from cancer. By asking the right questions, patients can learn what sorts of behaviors they should avoid, and what sorts of activities can assist them in lowering their risk of development or advancement of this cancer that affects a large majority of men over the age of 50.

Especially in the treatment of prostate cancer, it is important for patients and their doctors to openly communicate about the advantages and disadvantages of the several treatment options available. Treatment of this cancer can come in the form of surgery or radiation therapy, and depending on a number of factors and what the doctor thinks is best for the patient a treatment option can be chosen. To make an informed decision, patients need to ask their doctors what the best option is for their age and health, as sometimes pre-existing conditions can affect which prostate cancer treatment option will be pursued. Life expectancy also plays a role in the treatment options that will be considered for treating cancer.

The best questions a patient can ask their doctor are about ways they can directly affect the growth of the prostate cancer. By asking about certain foods and supplements that can slow growth of cancer, patients can have a direct impact on their health and avoid the foods that are potentially detrimental to their health. Men need to ask their doctor if the environment they work in can affect their health too, as itís been proven that men who are exposed to certain chemicals in the workplace have a much higher rate of prostate cancer development and death.
