Can I decrease my chanses of being diagnosed with an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer?
As with any type of cancer, a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and less red meat can help. We have also seen that a diet high in red fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes and strawberries, which are high in lycopene, can be of some benefit. More importantly, if there is a family history of prostate cancer, it is important to be vigilant with regular visits to your doctor. You may also consider a genetic test to look for the PCA3 gene which is associated with prostate cancer.
