Prostate cancer is the second most common malignancy in males and the sixth leading cause of cancer mortality in men with a relatively higher death rate in men of African descent. In the United States and other parts of Europe, more than 80% of diagnosed prostate cancer is localized, and 80-90% of these men receive some form of treatment.


What Causes Prostate Cancer

Currently, nobody knows what causes prostate cancer, but it is believed that several things can increase your risk of developing the condition.

Age Factor

As you get older, the risk rises, statistics shows that it is mostly diagnosed in men of 50 years of age.

Ethnic Group

Prostate cancer is more common in black men than in Asian men, let’s take Nigeria for example, Prostate cancer is one of the most diagnosed cancer in Nigeria, as many currently living with it without even knowing it.

Family History

Having a brother or father who developed prostate cancer before age 60 seems to increase your risk of developing it; research also shows that having a close female relative who developed breast cancer may also increase your risk of developing prostate cancer.



Recent research suggests there may be a link between obesity and prostate cancer, and a balanced diet and regular exercise may lower your risk of developing prostate cancer. Studies of exercise and prostate cancer risk have mostly shown that men who exercise may have a reduced risk of prostate cancer.


Research is ongoing into the links between diet and prostate cancer, and there is some evidence that a diet high in calcium is linked to an increased risk of developing prostate cancer. Reducing the number of dairy products you eat each day, choose a low fat while increasing the amount of fruit and vegetables you eat each day may lower the risk.


How can I prevent prostate cancer?

There's no proven prostate cancer prevention strategy.

But you may reduce your risk of prostate cancer by making healthy choices, such as exercising and eating a healthy diet.

How do you know if you have prostate cancer?

It is not possible to know if you have prostate cancer without visiting your doctor, as most men with early prostate cancer don’t have any symptoms. Even if you do have symptoms, that can be caused by other things, it is also not possible to check for prostate cancer yourself. The best way to know is to visit a health care center and have yourself checked.

Early Signs of Prostate Cancer

In the early stages of prostate cancer, there may be no signs or symptoms. More advanced prostate cancer might cause signs and symptoms that may be an indicator of this deadly disease being more prevalent in men. For example, some self-scrutinizing questions may include:

  • Am I having to pee more frequently, and usually in the middle of the night?
  • Do I have a sudden urge that, I need to use the toilet frequently?
  • When urinating or ejaculating, do I feel pain or have a “burning feeling.”?
