Reduce Risk of Prostate Cancer

World health - Prostate Cancer - Exercising regularly can help reduce prostate cancer risk. This conclusion is based on an analysis of 190 men with prostate biopsy, and has been published in the Journal of Uraology, published in September.

In another study, researchers at Duke University Medical Center found that those who are quite active with any activity, from walking with step was for several hours in a week, significantly reducing the possibility of prostate cancer.

The majority of those who studied it, 58% are people who sit continuously, which means they exercise less than the same period by one hour per week, even though only relaxed way.

The study also found that exercise was associated with less aggressive disease in men who had prostate cancer. "As the number of sports increased, decreased cancer risk," said lead author Dr. Jodi Antonelli, a researcher at the research center's urology.

The results of this study contribute to the ongoing debate about how exercise affects the risk of prostate cancer. "There have been dozens of studies on the value of exercise in reducing risk of prostate cancer, and part of the study was extensive. But the point is all that gives us a variety of signs," the researchers said in a press siara that accompanies the study.

Prostate cancer is cancer that develops in a gland in the male reproductive system. It occurs when prostate cells mutate and begin to grow out of control. The cells can spread by metastasis from the prostate to other parts of the body, especially bones and lymph nodes. Prostate cancer may cause pain, difficulty urinating, erectile dysfunction and other symptoms. Prostate cancer is rarely found in men aged less than 40 years.
