The incidence of prostate cancer influences significantly, for example, the diet.
Bratislava, November 7 (TASR) – Prostate cancer is one of the most common malignancies in men over 50 years of age. "In Slovakia, prostate cancer is almost 9,000. Although it is one of the most common oncological diseases in men, most do not go to preventive examinations, which is why prostate cancer is killed by nearly 600 Slovaks per year, and preventive examinations Helps detect disease in a timely manner. They can save their lives. " explained the chairman of the Slovak Urological Society Ivan Minčík.
November is also known in the world as a month of fighting against prostate cancer. Men also advocate a global initiative to fight prostate cancer by filming mergers and publishing them on social networks under the Movember initiative. The initiative emerged in 2003 as an attempt to revive the trend of the old fashion, the popularity of men's mergers. Later, however, the creators made an opportunity to recall prostate cancer and drew attention to the importance of prevention. Formally, the campaign of the 21 nations is under way. Men try to motivate other men to take courage and take a preventive exam to the urologist.
The incidence of prostate cancer influences significantly, for example, the diet. In advanced countries, where people consume large amounts of protein and animal fats, experts say the incidence of prostate cancer is significantly higher than in countries where there is a low-cholesterol and high-fiber diet and phytoestrogens . Prostate cancer is more common in obese patients, which is associated with high fat intake, cholesterol and lack of physical activity.
Genetics is also important. The risk of developing prostate cancer is higher if the cancer occurs in grade I recurrence, says Minčík. Most importantly, he does not underestimate proper prevention for all men in this age group.
The Movember initiative also supports Slovak hockey players motivating men to perform preventive urological tours.
