Prostate cancer is a disease that often remains undiagnosed in men because of the lack of symptoms. However for some, the cancer can grow quickly and spread to other parts of the body. It is not entirely clear why some men develop prostate cancer and others don’t; however, it is known that genetic and environmental factors play a role in the development of this disease. Although some of these risk factors can’t be changed, such as getting older and having a family history of prostate cancer, others can be altered. Adopting a healthy lifestyle and making positive dietary choices can all help towards protecting against prostate cancer.
