Global Prostate Cancer Diagnostics Market is classified on the basis of product type, age, cancer stage, and geography. Male reproductive system consists of an exocrine gland which is situated below the bladder and front of the rectum is known as “prostate”. The basic function of prostate gland is to secrete fluid that nurtures and guards the sperms. The prostate squeezes this fluid into the urethra, and it’s pushed with sperm as semen during the course of ejaculation.
The most common cancer in men is Prostate Cancer, which is characterized by the abnormal development of cells in the prostate. There is an uncontrolled duplication of these abnormal cells and at times may extent in the surrounding parts of the prostate gland. It is usually a slow developing diseases. One of the distinguishing feature of prostate cancer is that it is an age dependent disease. This simply means that as the age increases there are possibilities of developing this type of cancer. Some of the factors that increase the risk of prostate cancer include family history, age, chemical exposures, smoking, inflammation of prostate, sexually transmitted infections, etc.
The factors that propel the growth of the Prostate Cancer Diagnostics Market include variation in lifestyle, growing awareness among people, and technological innovations. On the other hand, there are also factors that may hamper the growth of the market such as high expense of treatment. In addition, adverse effects of surgery such as urinary incontinence & impotence and surgical risks like stroke, heart attack, blood clots etc.
Prostate Cancer Diagnostics Market is classified on the basis of product typeastumour biomarker tests, imaging, biopsy and other. Biomarker is a substance that is obtained in the urine, body tissues or blood of cancerous patient. It is formed by the tumour or in response to cancer by the body. Some of the examples ofbiomarker tests for prostate cancer include the 4Kscore,Prostate Health Index (PHI), etc. Imaging basically uses the aid of sound waves, X-Rays, magnetic fields, etc. in order generate pictures of the inner body. Some of the most frequently used imaging test to determine prostate cancer include CT scan, bone scan, and MRI.
Biopsy is a diagnostic tool wherein samples of prostate are removed and seen below the microscope. Prostate biopsy is also called as a transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) or core needle biopsy. This process is usually carried out to detect if there is presence of a cancerous lump in the prostate gland and cause of high level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in blood.
