Posted in: Prostate Cancer by Dr. Tarang Krishna

Most people don’t know about the functions of Prostate. It helps in making & storing seminal fluid. After skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men but can often be treated successfully.

Some people often question ‘Can women have prostate cancer’? Women don’t have a prostate gland. Skene’s glands or Skene’s ducts which are small glands on the front side of the vagina & corresponding ducts may be referred to as Female prostate that may function similarly to a man’s prostate. Does that mean women can’t have Prostate Cancer? That answer is ‘No,' though the prostate cancer is rare in the females.

What symptoms reflect that there is a problem in the female prostate?

Since prostate cancer is rare in women, that is why identifying the signs of prostate cancer might be difficult. But if you notice blood coming out of your urethra, it is important for you to visit a doctor because that may be a symptom. Other symptoms may include painful or frequent urination, blood in urine, painful ejaculation, abnormal menstrual cycle, or sudden changes in your menstrual cycle, the feeling of pressure behind the pubic bones, etc.

It’s always better to visit a doctor if you notice any abnormal symptoms, especially if they reappear. Early diagnosis can help in speedy recovery.

Prostate cancer always spread to the bones first; then it spreads to other parts of the body. When cancer spreads to the bones, it forms bone metastasis, which can be painful & can cause other problems as well such as fractures or high blood calcium levels that can be dangerous.
