I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Prostate Cancer: The Inevitable Disease?

If you’re a man or know a man, listen up!

The prostate, a small gland, is part of the male reproductive system that is responsible for the seminal fluid that carries sperm.

One of the most common cancers in males, prostate cancer is one of those cancers that usually grows slowly and undetected until advanced stages. But certain types of prostate cancer can grow quickly and aggressively. And research has found that if a man lives long enough, he will likely wind up with the disease.

Therefore, it’s important for men to know the warning signs of prostate cancer and take the appropriate steps toward diagnosis and treatment. Here’s what you should know about one of the most common cancers known to man and affecting men.

Associated Symptoms

During the early stages of prostate cancer, you probably won’t notice anything out of the ordinary. As the cancer grows, however, you’ll start to experience symptoms such as trouble urinating, a trickle of urine instead of your regular flow, blood in your urine, blood in your semen, discomfort or pain in your pelvic area, leg swelling, or bone pain.

Don’t ignore these symptoms or wait for them to go away on their own. Make an appointment to see your doctor as soon as the symptoms set in. Just like any other cancer, the earlier prostate cancer is detected and treated, the greater your chance for a full recovery.

Granted, prostate exams aren’t the most enjoyable things in the world, but they only last about 10 seconds. It’s well worth it. Just think of the possible consequences if you don’t get it done.

Who’s Most at Risk?

Currently, it is unclear exactly what causes prostate cancer. No one knows why cells in this small gland become abnormal and begin to multiply. There are, however, known factors that increase your risk of developing this type of cancer. Here are a few of them.

Age. The older you are, the greater your risk. Prostate cancer is most often seen in men over the age of 65.

Race. For an unknown reason, black men are more at risk than others. Also, the type of prostate cancer in black males is usually the aggressive, fast-spreading type.

Family. If your father, uncle, or brother has had prostate cancer, you’re at a greater risk.

Weight. Obese men are more likely to develop this disease, and when they do, it is often more advanced and more difficult to treat, making it more fatal.

What Else Could Go Wrong?

Prostate cancer and the methods used to treat it can lead to health complications. If the cancer is left untreated, it can spread to surrounding organs or enter the bloodstream or lymphatic system, where it can reach your bones and other body organs. Once prostate cancer has advanced to this stage, it can cause weakness, fatigue, and weight loss. Cancer that has spread to other parts of the body may respond to treatment, but will never be completely cured.

Additionally, prostate cancer and the treatment of prostate cancer may lead to urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, kidney problems, or bladder problems.

Screenings and Diagnosis

Whereas many medical tests are accepted for optimal health, whether or not men should receive regular prostate cancer screenings is debated in the medical community. Some recommend screenings for men starting in their 40s or earlier if they’re considered high risk.

Tests to screen for prostate cancer include a digital rectal exam and a prostate-specific antigen blood test. If these show abnormalities, further testing with an ultrasound or biopsy may be required.

Treatment and Prevention

Treatment for prostate cancer will depend on the speed the cancer is growing, if it has spread, and the long-term benefits or complications of treatment. Slow-growing prostate cancer in its earliest stages that isn’t causing any symptoms may not need immediate treatment or may never need treatment. In this case, frequent, regular checkups are required, a process called “watchful waiting.” Cancer that is progressing may need hormone therapy to slow its growth, surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.

There is no way to fully prevent prostate cancer. Ways to reduce your risk include eating a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables (especially tomatoes), exercising on most days of the week, and maintaining a healthy weight. But if you wind up with prostate cancer, don’t give up on life. With appropriate treatment (or simply watching it to make sure it doesn’t grow worse), you can live a full and long life.
