Glossary for Prostate Cancer

  • Acute bacterial prostatitis: Bacterial prostatitis is a bacterial inflammation of the prostate gland, in men.
  • Acute prostatitis: An acute condition which affects the prostate which is the result of infammation
  • Benign Prostate Hyperplasia: Non-cancerous prostrate enlargement common with aging
  • Bladder Cancer: Bladder cancer refers to any of several types of malignant growths of the urinary bladder. It is a disease in which abnormal cells multiply without control in the bladder.
  • Bone pain: Bone pain or tenderness is aching or other discomfort in one or more bones.
  • Cancer: Abnormal overgrowth of body cells.
  • Chronic bacterial prostatitis: Chronic bacterial prostatitis is a condition in which infection of the prostate and the related symptoms develop more slowly.. The infection is normally just in the prostate, and there is no other infection such as a bladder infection. Symptoms are not as dramatic as with an acute infection. The symptoms may 'drag on', or come and go.
  • Diabetes: Failing or reduced ability of the body to handle sugars.
  • Emphysematous prostatic abscess: Emphysematous prostatic abscess is an unusual occurrence in the era of modern antibiotics.
  • Enlarged prostate: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland that may restrict the flow of urine from the bladder.
  • Eosinophilic cystitis: Eosinophilic cystitis is an unusual variant of cystitis that may be characterized by dysuria and hematuria. Biopsy is essential to establish the diagnosis. It usually causes irritative voiding symptoms and hematuria and in its rare tumor-like appearance the disease may mimic an invasive bladder neoplasm.
  • Epididymitis: Infection of the epididymis (testicle tube)
  • Frequent urination: Urinating more often than normal
  • Granulomatous prostatitis: Granulomatous prostatitis is an unusual benign inflammatory process of the prostate. Clinically, it mimics prostatic carcinoma, thus requiring pathological examination for diagnosis.
  • Hematuria: Blood in the urine
  • Hemorrhagic prostatic cyst: Cysts in the region of the prostate are common and may present as either intraprostatic or periprostatic. However, a hemorrhagic cyst in this area is unusual.
  • Histoplasma prostatic abscess: Prostatic abscess, which is an uncommon but well-described complication of acute bacterial prostatitis (ABP), is a potential indication for surgery.
  • Hydatid cyst: It is rare for hydatid disease to be encountered primarily in the urogenital system or retroperitoneum. Moreover, prostatic involvement is extremely rare.
  • Inability to urinate: inability to micturate can be due to external, internal or neurogenic in nature
  • Li-Fraumeni syndrome: A rare inherited disorder characterized by tumor development by young adulthood.
  • Male genital organ tumors: Tumors affecting the male genetics, whether cancerous or benign.
  • Men only conditions: Conditions affecting only males, and not females.
  • Mens Health Conditions: Medical conditions related to men's health.
  • Metastatic cancer: Any cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.
  • Metastatic prostate cancer: Advanced prostate cancer results from any combination of lymphatic, blood, or contiguous local spread.
  • Night urination: Urination during the night
  • No symptoms: The absence of noticable symptoms.
  • Pathological fracture: The occurrence of a fracture a bone of the body caused by a disease state
  • Pelvic Cancer: Any malignancy that is located in the anatomical location of the pelvis
  • Pelvic conditions: Any medical condition affecting the pelvic region.
  • Primary prostate cancer: Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among males and is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in males.
  • Prostate Cancer: Cancer of the prostate.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 1: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 1 is linked to a defect on chromosome 1q24-q25 and is inherited in a dominant manner.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 10: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 10 is linked to a defect on chromosome 8q24.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 11: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 11 is linked to a defect on chromosome 17p12.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 12: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 12 is linked to a defect on chromosome 2p15.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 13: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 13 is linked to a defect on chromosome 10q11.2.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 14: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 14 is linked to a defect on chromosome 11q13.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 15: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 15 is linked to a defect on chromosome 19q13.4.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 2: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 2 is linked to a defect on chromosome 17p11.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 3: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 3 is linked to a defect on chromosome 20q13.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 4: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 4 is linked to a defect on chromosome 7p11-q21.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 5: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 5 is linked to a defect on chromosome 3p26.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 6: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 6 is linked to a defect on chromosome 22q12.3.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 7: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 7 is linked to a defect on chromosome 15q12.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 8: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 8 is linked to a defect on chromosome 1q42.2-q43.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, 9: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. Type 9 is linked to a defect on chromosome 17q21-q22.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, X-linked 1: An inherited form of prostate cancer linked to chromosome Xq27-q28.
  • Prostate cancer, hereditary, X-linked 2: Many forms of prostate cancer are due to inherited defect on a chromosome. X-linked type 2 is linked to a defect on chromosome Xp11.22.
  • Prostate conditions: Any condition affecting the prostate in men.
  • Prostate infection: Infection of the prostate gland.
  • Prostate stones: Stones in the prostate are very common. They appear to be calcified proteinaceous bodies called corpora amylacea.
  • Prostatic tuberculosis: Tuberculous prostatitis must be viewed as a systemic disease, and the treatment is primarily medical. Hospitalization is usually unnecessary but may be required to treat noncompliant patients.
  • Prostatitis: Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland, in men.
  • Secondary Bone Cancer: Tumour development in bone as a result of spread from a primary malignant tumour from another body site (usually lung bronchus, breast and prostate)
  • Seminal vesiculitis: Seminal vesiculitis is an inflammation of the seminal vesicles, most often secondary to prostatitis, although it may occur independently.
  • Senior health conditions: Medical conditions affecting seniors, male or female.
