Male Prostate Cancer Symptoms

Discover nutrients that will help nourish and protect your prostate

I don't really like to start out on negative/serious tone whenever I share, but this matter is a serious matter.

You see, the time men experience any prostate cancer symptoms the cancer has usually reached an advanced stage or has spread outside the prostate gland.

Asian governments (including Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam) are launching prostate and colorectal initiatives to help early detection and early intervention.

It is a serious problem, actually - in the early stages, prostate cancer usually is asymptomatic, meaning which, there is no obvious signs and symptoms.

As guys/makes, prostate cancer is one of the deadliest cancer amongst men, and it is by far the number #1 killer:

What's worse is that conventional medical interventions only estimates 20-30% chances of treatment success. That means that every 10 person who gets this disease, 8 of them would not survive it.

Plus, conventional western medical and pharmaceutical drugs often come with so much negative and nasty side effects, including developing breasts and developing heart issues, and these are just 2 of them.

Note: as I come from a health and healthcare background, being a trained occupational therapist, I know and have seen firsthand, side effects of medications. Plus, conventional medicine is not cheap.

Which is why when I write in, Xtend-Life health supplements and skincare products, which are all natural, based on science, has zero side effects and scores of testimonials - to me, it's pretty straight forward - prevention is better (and cheaper) than cure.

In just year 2005, close to a quarter million American males were diagnosed with prostate cancer, and from them, about 30,000 death occurred from it.

Because of the prevalence and onset of prostate cancer in older men, preventative measures should be taken as early as we can, we should start as early as in our 30s.

These measures are based on diet as well as prostate health supplementing of active and potent anti-prostate-cancer nutrients (more on that below)

True statistics as of 2005:

  • 1 in 6 men WILL develop prostate cancer in his lifetime, which will be cancerous
  • From 1 year old to 39 years old, the odds of getting prostate cancer is 1 in 10,000
  • For men aged 40 years old to 59 years old, the risk increases to 1 in 59
  • For men aged 60 years old to 79 years old, 1 in 7

Scary, scary numbers indeed.

That's why men need to proactively take action as early as possible, when we feel invincible during our 30s and 40s, to prevent and treat something so scary that hits many men.

In line with the stats above, 67% of all prostate cancers are diagnosed in men over the age of 65 years old.

Though many doctors and experts believe that every man will eventually develop prostate cancer as long as he lives longer and longer, yet some natural research into plant and natural based nutrients/minerals/vitamins/herbs seems to be very positive.

Typical Prostate Cancer Symptoms

Ok, so we've seen the scary, scary stats, so let's now look at what typical prostate cancer symptoms look like (usually one or more of the following):

  • decrease in size, force or flow of urine
  • painful or burning urination
  • difficulty to urinate (starting or finishing)
  • increased urination frequency, especially at night
  • presence of blood in urine or semen

Ok, first of all please note that these symptoms are often caused by BHP, which basically means an enlarged prostate, and may NOT be prostate cancer, so if a male/man experiences any of the above it doesn't mean he has prostate cancer, ok?

But one who has any of the symptoms above should check with his doctor, and run all the necessary tests to rule out cancer, just in case la.

Note: if the prostate cancer is in very advanced stages, it can spread to the bones, which can cause aching/nagging/irritating pain in our hips, back, pelvis - please immediately see a doctor.

Causes of Prostate Cancer and Symptoms

Unfortunately, at this point of writing in 2016, the exact causes of prostate cancer is still unknown.

Yeah, it's still unknown.

Yes, we've progressed so much in science, medicine, but yet there's still so much to learn and discover. On a plus side, there are some risk factors that has been identified and studies are being done to be more definitive.

From these studies, genetics is one of the major risk factors because prostate cancer (including other conditions and cancer) seems to run in families. Having first degree relatives such as brother/father with prostate cancer doubles or triples a man's risk of developing it too =(

Risk factors of prostate cancers includes:

  • Age

    Being over 40s is one, being over 60s is very, very high (refer to stats above)

  • Race / Ethnicity

    Prostate cancer occurs more often in African-American men and in Caribbean men of African ancestry than in men of other races. African-American men are also more than twice as likely to die of prostate cancer as white men. Prostate cancer occurs less often in Asian-American and Hispanic/Latino men than in non-Hispanic whites. The reasons for these racial and ethnic differences are not clear.

  • Geography

    Prostate cancer is most common in North America, northwestern Europe, Australia, and on Caribbean islands. It is less common in Asia, Africa, Central America, and South America. The reasons for this are not clear.

    More intensive screening in some developed countries probably accounts for at least part of this difference, but other factors such as lifestyle differences (diet, etc.) are likely to be important as well.

    For example, men of Asian descent living in the United States have a lower risk of prostate cancer than white Americans, but their risk is higher than that of men of similar backgrounds living in Asia.

  • Family History

    Prostate cancer seems to run in some families, which suggests that in some cases there may be an inherited or genetic factor. Having a father or brother with prostate cancer more than doubles a man’s risk of developing this disease.

    (The risk is higher for men who have a brother with the disease than for those with an affected father.) The risk is much higher for men with several affected relatives, particularly if their relatives were young when the cancer was found.

  • Genetic / Gene Changes

    Scientists have found several inherited gene changes that seem to raise prostate cancer risk, but they probably account for only a small percentage of cases overall. For example:

    (a) Inherited mutations of the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes raise the risk of breast and ovarian cancers in some families. Mutations in these genes may also increase prostate cancer risk in some men.

    (b) Men with Lynch syndrome (also known as hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer, or HNPCC), a condition caused by inherited gene changes, have an increased risk for a number of cancers, including prostate cancer.

  • Diet and Food

    The exact role of diet in prostate cancer is not clear, but several factors have been studied. Men who eat a lot of red meat or high-fat dairy products appear to have a slightly higher chance of getting prostate cancer. These men also tend to eat fewer fruits and vegetables.

    Doctors aren’t sure which of these factors is responsible for raising the risk. Some studies have suggested that men who consume a lot of calcium (through food or supplements) may have a higher risk of developing prostate cancer.

    Dairy foods (which are often high in calcium) might also increase risk. But most studies have not found such a link with the levels of calcium found in the average diet, and it’s important to note that calcium is known to have other important health benefits.

  • Obesity / Overweight

    Most studies have not found that being obese (very overweight) is linked with a higher overall risk of getting prostate cancer. Some studies have found that obese men have a lower risk of getting a low-grade (less dangerous) form of the disease, but a higher risk of getting more aggressive prostate cancer.

    The reasons for this are not clear. Some studies have also found that obese men may be at greater risk for having more advanced prostate cancer and of dying from prostate cancer, but not all studies have found this.

  • Smoking

    Most studies have not found a link between smoking and prostate cancer risk. Some research has linked smoking to a possible small increase in the risk of death from prostate cancer, but this finding will need to be confirmed by other studies.

  • Workplace Exposure

    There is some evidence that firefighters are exposed to substances (toxic combustion products) that may increase their risk of prostate cancer.

  • Prostate-related Inflammation

    Some studies have suggested that prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland) may be linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer, but other studies have not found such a link. Inflammation is often seen in samples of prostate tissue that also contain cancer. The link between the two is not yet clear, but this is an active area of research.

  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

    Researchers have looked to see if sexually transmitted infections (like gonorrhea or chlamydia) might increase the risk of prostate cancer, because they can lead to inflammation of the prostate. So far, studies have not agreed, and no firm conclusions have been reached.

  • Vasectomy

    Some studies have suggested that men who have had a vasectomy (minor surgery to make men infertile) have a slightly increased risk for prostate cancer. But other studies have not found an increased risk among men who have had this operation. Research on this possible link is still under way.

Preventing And Treating Prostate Cancer Symptoms NATURALLY

Natural Cures for Prostate Cancer

Because the exact causes of cancer of the prostate is not fully known or understood, this means that the current treatments and prevention interventions of prostate cancer is not a definite given - you cannot fully treat what you do not fully understand.

A large and growing amount of evidence is pointing towards changing and modifying what you eat as well as supplementing with high quality multi-vitamins, multi-minerals and multi-nutrients are a good combination to prevent.

Diet & Food

Our diet and our food/nutrition intake are the FIRST things to factor in and consider when looking at natural-occuring cures for preventing prostate cancer.

The diet that should be considered is the diet dating back to the time where there was no diseases, where man was considered the most healthy. This is called and considered the "primitive man diet" or the popular "paleo diet", as it provides a lot of nutrients and minerals our bodies need to achieve and maintain good health.

Historians and anthropological studies are finding that the primitive man's diet consisted 40% of meat and 60% from vegetation...but the most significant thing is that the primitive man took almost zero sugar.

That's zero, with a big fat 0. Nil.

And this corroborates with studies that are indicating that cancer cells thrives on sugar, and without sugar, cancer cells cannot sustain, and just die.

Exercise & Activity

The primitive man moved a lot, and I would imagine that they never stopped until they're sleeping or dead. I understand, in our tech and convenient worlds today, many of us are glued/locked to our chairs and desks for our work, playing computer games and e-sports or watching videos.

Make it a habit to stand and walk, every 30 minutes (except when you sleep of course) - this will keep your circulation good and strong.

Multi-nutrient Supplements For Improved Prostate Health

Internet search will easily show you natural and alternative prostate cancer and/or prostate health treatments including supplements, and centered around a few key prostate herbs and nutrients.

As our diets are definitely deficient/low on nutrients/minerals, especially of those minerals vital for prostate health, we need to get them though high quality, science based, natural multi-nutrient supplement, which takes into consideration the dosage as well as their interactions with each other.

This means that it needs to be overseen by a doctor. researcher, nutritionist and scientist who understands the human prostate and human health needs.

Let's look at some of the key ingredients required for healthy prostate:

  • beta sitosterol
  • corn silk
  • lycopene
  • saw palmetto
  • zinc
  • tumeric
  • grape seed
  • quercetin
  • omega 3
  • green tea
  • resveratrol

Beta Sitosterol 

More potent than the two famous prostate nutrients – Saw Palmetto and Pygeum and has been proven effective in treating prostrate issues such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and is well known for active and  powerful anti-cancer characteristics.

Corn Silk 

A diuretic and demulcent to our urinary tract and contains Saponins, allontoin, sterols, tannins, and an alkaloid called hordenine and vitamin C and vitamin K.


Derived from tomatoes and shown to lower the risks of developing prostate cancer. In recent years, it has become more and more popular as a prostate nutrient.

Saw Palmetto 

A very, very popular prostate nutrient, especially in Europe, for the treatment of enlarged prostate. What it does is that it helps to shrink our prostate, reducing the symptoms of an enlarged prostate such as BPH. Studies show that saw palmetto out-did "Proscar" - a medical pharmaceutical testosterone blocker which is conventionally used as a medical intervention for BPH.


Zinc is found abundantly in our prostate than in any other organs, and zinc deficiency is associated with enlargement of our prostate. You know, zinc is usually included in supplements in the form zinc citrate, but zinc citrate on its own is useless, both zinc citrate AND zinc aspartate must be present together because zinc citrate HELPS zinc aspartate to get to the prostate. Zinc citrate, being on a different metabolic pathway, cannot get to the prostate.


Lab and animal studies are showing the anti-cancer powers (including the treatment of prostate cancer), and it's been very positive.

Grape Seed & Quercetin 

Both contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics that blocks male hormones which encourage the growth of cancer cells.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids 

Omega-3 fatty acid may inhibit the growth of prostate cancer symptoms. Population-based studies on groups of male test subjects indicates that that a low-fat diet including taking omega-3 fatty acids, from fish or Omega 3 supplements, helps to prevent the development of prostate cancer.

Green Tea 

A substance in green tea has been found by researchers at the Mayo Clinic to be an active combatant of prostate cancer cells. There are also many clinical and research studies linking green tea consumption to a reduced risk for prostate cancer and the onset of prostate cancer symptoms.


Is a very active and powerful phytonutrient, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant natural compound that many studies and research today are considering to be the leading anti-cancer substance, especially anti-prostate-cancer.

Independent studies demonstrates how resveratrol blocks and combats prostate cancer cells at their various stages, and utilizes multiple anti-cancer cells mechanisms (more than 12)

That being said, for resveratrol to be at its maximum effectiveness, it should be combined with other synergistic phytonutrients (e.g. quercetin) to improve and enhance its medicinal effects. An extract called 'indole-3-carbinol' works synergistically with resveratrol to kill more cancer cells.

There also needs to be as many "anti-cancer nutrients" that works synergistically together, and especially important are those that improves the immunity and immune system (as your immune system is your body's innate first line of defence against cancer/diseases)

Some of the most potent anti-cancer nutrients:

  • co-enzyme Q10
  • polysaccharides
  • alpha lipoic acid
  • colostrum
  • garlic
  • tumeric
  • quercetin
  • vitamins C, E, B6
  • beta carotene
  • N-acetyl L-cysteine
  • protease
  • manganese
  • calcium
  • indole-3-carbinol
