The incidence of prostate cancer is significantly affected, for example, by diet.
Bratislava, 7 November (TASR) – prostate cancer is one of the most common malignancies in men over 50 years of age. "In Slovakia, prostate cancer is almost 9000. Although this is one of the most common viral oncological diseases, most of them do not go to preventive examinations, so nearly 600 Slovak women die every year, and preventive examinations help to detect the disease in a timely manner. their life " explained the chairman of the Slovak Urology Association Ivan Minčík.
November is also known worldwide as a month in the fight against prostate cancer. Men also support a worldwide initiative to fight prostate cancer by filming them together and publishing them in social networks within the Movember initiative. The initiative began in 2003 as an attempt to restore the old fashion trend – the popularity of men's fusion. However, later, the authors created an opportunity to remind prostate cancer and pay attention to the importance of prevention. Officially the campaign of 21 countries continues. Men try to motivate other men to perceive courage and conduct a prophylactic examination in the urology.
The incidence of prostate cancer is significantly affected, for example, by diet. Experts say that the incidence of prostate cancer is significantly higher in countries with high levels of cholesterol and high levels of fiber and phytoestrogens in advanced countries where people consume large amounts of protein and animal fat. Prostate cancer is more common in obese patients, which is associated with high fat, cholesterol and lack of physical activity.
Genetics is also important. "The risk of developing prostate cancer is greater if the cancer starts with a first-degree relapse." says Minčík. Most importantly, he does not appreciate the prevention that is suitable for all men in this age group.
The Movember initiative also supports Slovak hockey players who motivate men to take preventive urological trips.
