Breaking New Grounds through Prostate Cancer Risk Reduction

There are several famous men who had prostate cancer. Here in the Philippines, the Honorable Raul Roco, succumb to prostate cancer in 2005 at the age of 64.

Prostate gland is found only in males. The prostate gland encircles the upper part of the urethra and lies below the neck of the bladder. It secretes a thin, milky alkaline fluid containing high levels of zinc, calcium, citric acid, and acid phosphatase. This fluid protects the sperm fro the acidic environment of the vagina and the male urethra. When a portion of the prostate enlarges, it may impinge upon the flow of urine.

Prostate cancer is the fourth leading cause of Cancer in the Philippines among males. Among the risk factors for developing prostate cancer are, race, ethnicity, family history (if your father has it, you are more prone to have it), age (>50), lifestyle (diet, smoking, alcohol drinking), chronic diseases (obesity, diabetes). An elevated Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA, a laboratory test), increases the risk of developing prostate cancer.

GlaxoSmithKline  has launched the new indication for Dutasteride, a drug approved by the local Food and Drug Administration, on its use for the reduction of in the risk of prostate cancer by 23 % overall.

“ Fight prostate cancer before it even start”, as the battle cry of GSK in bringing a medicine that is affordable to Filipinos to improve their chances of protecting themselves against this deadly cancer. Dutasteride, a new weapon to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

If you have prostate gland health concerns, visit your Urologist for further information about Dutasteride, for proper assessment and treatment.
