Ovarian cancer in women and testicles in men - stages, symptoms and treatment
The beautiful half of humanity
Postmenopause is a turning point in the lives of all women. The hormonal background changes, the functioning of the ovaries fades away and irreversible processes take place in the body. It is this period that becomes critical. Therefore, listen to yourself - do not show symptoms characteristic of ovarian cancer (and uterus). Namely:
- lower back pain, pelvic and lower abdomen;
- frequent urination to urinate (a tumor of the ovaries presses on the bladder);
- pain during intercourse;
- loss of appetite (characteristic of cancers of any organ, not just ovarian cancer);
- feeling of overeating;
- flatulence, bloating (sometimes misleading, but you should never rule out ovarian disease);
- persistent indigestion (typical of ovarian disease);
- weight fluctuation;
- increased waist (also expresses ovarian problems).
Having found similar signs of ovarian cancer, we recommend that you urgently visit a gynecologist, because no one knows exactly how much time you have left. And the unloved doctor of all women will prescribe a course of examination of the reproductive system. Timely diagnosis allows you to identify cancer of the ovary and uterus in the initial stages, which greatly facilitates further treatment. Therefore, dear ladies, set aside all your urgent matters and go to the clinic.
If women can still somehow be persuaded to undergo a diagnosis of cancer of the reproductive system (uterus and ovary), then it is almost impossible to convince men. They categorically ignore any signs of testicular disease.
Such actions of a strong half of humanity are completely incomprehensible to doctors and they do their best to enlighten men, tell them what symptoms testicular cancer has:
- swelling in the scrotum and in general any changes in its size;
- breast augmentation;
- unexplained fever;
- signs of problems with urination;
- sudden weight loss;
- lower abdominal pain;
- chronic fatigue.
In men, as in women, there are also factors that increase the risk of developing cancer:
- cryptorchidism - undescended testicle in the scrotum;
- genetics (there were cases of cancer in the family);
- Kleinfelter syndrome.
What conclusion should men draw on the basis of the above information? A visit to the urologist every year is strictly mandatory.(see photo)! However, if you have noticed alarming symptoms and are at high risk, do not put a cross on yourself. People like you live a long full life. And reinsure it is necessary that testicular cancer does not take you by surprise.
Early diagnosis of genital cancer - the testicles (for men), the ovary and the uterus (for women) is crucial for the successful treatment of malignant tumors. No matter how much is said about this before, the doctors are not tired of repeating the obvious truths until now. Diagnosis consists of:
- Ultrasound of the testicles in men (ultrasound of the ovaries and uterus for women).
- Computed tomography;
- Blood test (tumor markers).
- Biopsy.In fact, only this method can fully confirm or deny the primary signs of cancer of the testicles, ovary, uterus.
The tumor has several stages, and it is vital to start therapy at an earlier one.
First stage. Cancer did not extend beyond the testes / ovary. Your personal vigilance and timely diagnosis gives a 95 percent chance of completely getting rid of tumors.
Second stage. The tumor affects the organs located in the neighborhood (small pelvis).
Third stage. Metastases affect the nearby lymph nodes.
Fourth stage. Metastases throughout the body. Supportive measures can reduce the pain symptoms of cancer.
Never give up - don't give in to dangerous diseases of the testicles, ovaries and uterus. In medical practice, paradoxical cases of curing completely hopeless patients are known. Unique healing only confirms the theory of the limitless possibilities of our body.
“Whose side will you take?”
This is exactly how the legendary Avicenna raised the question.Of the two opposing sides - the disease and the doctor - the patient chooses his own. Then the result of the battle is predetermined.
Cancer of the reproductive system (testicles, ovaries, uterus) in the initial stages has mild symptoms, but timely diagnosis of men and women gives a chance to hope for a miracle.
