prof. Dr. Berrin Pehlivan warns: “Observe the changes in your body and take them seriously, do not neglect to share them with experts”. When it comes to cancer cases in men, prostate cancer comes to mind first. However, there are other cancers that are unique to men, although they are not common in the world of men. Moreover, these species can be more aggressive and unlucky in terms of quality of life. prof. Dr. Berrin Pehlivan stated that in addition to prostate cancer being the most common type of cancer in men, testicular cancer is the most common urological cancer especially between the ages of 25-34. Pehlivan said, “The incidence of testicular cancer has increased in recent years. The number of recorded cases in America in 2021 is close to 9; The number of deaths is 500. As in all types of cancer, early diagnosis is important in this type of cancer. Testicular cancer manifests itself with swelling and pain in one of the testicles or rarely on both sides. When testicular cancer is suspected, we diagnose it by performing a biopsy after a series of examinations starting with ultrasound and blood tests.
We can use one or more of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy in the treatment. In recent years, high-dose chemotherapy, bone marrow transplantation and new drugs have been tried and more successful treatments have been made in high-risk patients, but I cannot pass without mentioning the advantages of early diagnosis. When the tumor is located in the testis, the subject becomes even more sensitive. When it comes to the possible side effects of standard treatments, especially the side effects on sexual and reproductive function, there will be many who recommend alternative treatment; Herbal treatments are at the forefront of these. However, it is worth emphasizing that we should not give up on scientific medicine persistently.” said.
Another danger is “penile cancer”
Penile cancer, which develops in the male genitalia, is the second most common cancer after testis. prof. Dr. Berrin Pehivan emphasized that the penis contains many tissues, including nerves, muscles and blood vessels, but that tumors originating from the skin are frequently encountered, and “the symptoms begin with discoloration and swelling. If you observe a change that does not go away within 10 days, you should definitely consult your doctor. It is absolutely necessary to find a solution for persistent and recurring infections. Cancer development is inevitable on the basis of chronic inflammation. As always, it is useful to mention early diagnosis; because when detected early, it is possible to treat with small interventions that will not affect quality of life.”
