Prostate cancer found mostly in the older men is a chronic condition characterized by irregular cell growth in the prostate tissues caused by the alternation of cell DNA.
Most cases of prostate cancer start in the cells on the surface of the inner lining tissue before penetrating into deeper layers to induce a malignant tumor.
Believe it or not, prostate cancer can be classified into many different types, depending on the type of cell that causes the onset of primary cancer.
* Adenocarcinomas, the most common type of prostate cancer that develops in the gland cells that line the prostate gland.
* Ductal adenocarcinoma, the type of cancer starts in the cells that line the ducts (tubes) of the prostate gland. r
* Transitional cell cancer is cancer that starts in the cells that line the tube carrying urine to the outside of the body (the urethra).
1. Stage 0
If the cancerous cell has not penetrated in deeper tissue but in the surface of the prostate lining.
2. Stage I
In stage I, The cancerous cells are no longer in the surface but have invaded into deep the prostate lining, but still completely inside the prostate.
a. Stage IA1
The cancer is not ≤ 3 mm (1/8 inch) deep and ≤ 7 mm (1/4 inch) wide.
a.1. Stage IA1: The spreading is < 3mm(1/8 inch) deep and & less than 7mm (1/4 inch) wide.
a.2. Stage IA2: The invasion area is ≥ 3 mm but ≤ 5 mm (about 1/5 inch) deep and & less than 7 mm (about 1/4 inch) wide.
b. Stage IB:
Cancer in this stage has invaded the connective tissue, & less than 5cm (2 inches).
b.1. Stage IB1: Cancer is 4 cm large (1 3/4 inches).b.2. Stage IB2: Cancer is ≥ 4 cm (1 3/4 inches) but & less than 5cm (2 inches)
3. Stage II
In stage II, the cancerous cells have spread to distant tissues but are still within the prostate.
4. Stage III
In this stage, cancerous cells have spread to the tissues immediately surrounding the prostate.
5. Stage IV
In this stage, cancerous cells have spread to the tissues immediately outside of the prostate, into other distant parts of the body
With an aim to find a natural and potential ingredient for the treatment of prostate cancer with no side effects, researchers investigated Cucurbitacin B (CuB), a natural compound isolated from cucumber and other vegetables.
