Freezing Prostate Cancer Does a Man's Body Good

urination or can interfere with sexual function. It is estimated that there are more than 2 million American men currently living with prostate cancer. Older age, African American race and a family history of the disease can all increase the likelihood of a man being diagnosed with the disease. As men increase in age, their risk of developing prostate cancer increases exponentially. An estimated 230,000 new cases are diagnosed annually in the United States, with nearly 30,000 annual deaths. African American men have higher incidence and at least double the mortality rates compared with men of other racial and ethnic groups. Historically, prostate cancer has been considered an older man's disease; however the incidence is increasing in men in their 40s and 50s.

Prostate cancer usually grows slowly and initially remains confined to the prostate gland. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly. A diagnosis of prostate cancer can be scary not only because it can be life-threatening, but also because invasive treatments can cause side effects such as bladder control problems and erectile dysfunction (impotence). Men are classified as being at low, intermediate or high risk. The criteria used to categorize the risk include the results of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test (which looks for a protein produced by the prostate gland and can help detect cancer), tumor aggressiveness and the clinical stage of the tumor.
