    Guava leaves prostate cancer treatment

    Prostate cancer is a grave public health problem worldwide. Despite the fact that most cases

    currently present with localized disease at the time of diagnosis, about 5% of men still present with

    metastatic disease.[2] The most common site of spread is bone, and these lesions are frequently

    symptomatic, causing pain, debility, and functional impairment.[9] Many of these men do not have

    curative treatment options, and this remains a crucial clinical problem, both in terms of the number

    of men affected and its impact on their quality of life. For these reasons, it is fundamental to invest

    time and intellectual resources into finding new and novel targets for the treatment of prostate


    It seems that the studies of Sarfaraz and colleagues lead to the direction that cannabinoids should

    be considered as agents for the management of prostate cancer, pending support from in vivo

    experiments. This would not only make sense from an anti-androgenic point of view but also for

    men with bone metastatic prostate cancer, perhaps from a pain management or palliative point of

    view. Among the patients suffering with chronic pain and receiving opioids, one in five abuse

    prescription controlled substances,[69,70] and it is not difficult to see that opioid dependence and

    abuse is becoming a public health problem. Different methods of managing pain should be

    addressed to avoid these scenarios.

    The presence of pain in men with advanced prostate cancer is an immediate indication for

    aggressive management with analgesics, while adequate treatments that address directly the cause

    of the pain are pursued.[10] Cannabinoids possess attributes that have impact in both cancer pain

    and prostate cancer pathophysiology. These compounds harbor analgesic properties that aid bone

  • cancer pain, reduce opioid consumption, side effects, and dependence, as well as exhibiting anti-

    androgenic effects on experimental prostate cancer cells.


    ACTIVE chemicals in cannabis have been shown to halt prostate cancer cell growth according to

    research published in the British Journal of Cancer* today.

    Researchers from the University of Alcala, in Madrid tested the effects of the active chemicals in

    cannabis called cannabinoids** on three human prostate cancer cell lines - called PC-3, DU-a45 and


    The prostate cancer cells carry molecular 'garages'- called receptors- in which cannabinoids can


    The scientists showed for the first time that if cannabinoids 'park' on a receptor called CB2, the

    cancer cells stop multiplying.

    Update from Dennis Hill (2.28.13):

     My progress is good. Asked my doctor the meaning of my last three PSAs. He said: The PSA

    has not risen over 2.4 in nine months, we can presume the cancer is in remission. Music to

    my ears. Cannabinoid extract wins again. Huzzah!

    Previous update (12.8.12):

     After six months using cannabis extract, a prostate biopsy confirmed the cancer was gone, in

    February 2010. Twenty months later, biopsy showed cancer had returned. I have reinstated

    cannabis extract and PSA is declining. I expect the cancer to be gone soon, just as it did

    Every man should have an examination every year!

    Prostate cancer is cancer that starts in the prostate

    gland. The prostate is a small, walnut-sized structure

    that makes up part of a man's reproductive system. It

    wraps around the urethra, the tube that carries urine

    out of the body.

    What is prostate cancer? Prostate cancer occurs when cells in the prostate gland grow out of

    control. There are often no early prostate cancer symptoms, but some men have urinary symptoms

    and discomfort. Prostate cancer treatment options are surgery, chemotherapy, cryotherapy,

    hormonal therapy, and/or radiation. In some instances, doctors recommend "watchful waiting”.

    There are no warning signs or symptoms of early prostate cancer. Once a malignant tumor causes

    the prostate gland to swell significantly, or once cancer spreads beyond the prostate, the following

    symptoms may be present:

     • A frequent need to urinate, especially at night.

     • Difficulty starting or stopping a stream of urine.

     • A weak or interrupted urinary stream.

     • Inability to urinate standing up.

     • A painful or burning sensation during urination Symptoms

    .The PSA blood test is often done to screen men for prostate cancer. Because of PSA testing, most

    prostate cancers are now found before they cause any symptoms.

    The symptoms listed below can occur with prostate cancer (Most of the time these symptoms are

    caused by other prostate problems that are not cancer):

     • Delayed or slowed start of urinary stream

     • Dribbling or leakage of urine, most often after urinating

     • Slow urinary stream

     • Straining when urinating, or not being able to empty out all of the urine

     • Blood in the urine or semen

     • Bone pain or tenderness, most often in the lower back and pelvic bones (only when the cancer

    has spread)

  • Prostate cancer is the third most common cause of death from cancer in men of all ages and is the

    most common cause of death from cancer in men over age seventy-five. Prostate cancer is rarely

    found in men younger than forty.

    People who are at higher risk include:

     • African-American men, who are also likely to develop cancer at every age

     • Men who are older than 60

     • Men who have a father or brother with prostate cancer

     • Men exposed to agent orange exposure

     • Men who abuse alcohol

     • Farmers

     • Men who eat a diet high in fat, especially animal fat

     • Tire plant workers

     • Painters

     • Men who have been exposed to cadmium

    The lowest number of cases occurs in Japanese men living in Japan (this benefit is lost after one

    generation of living in the U.S.) and those who do not eat meat (vegetarians). A common problem in

    almost all men as they grow older is an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH).

    This problem does not raise your risk of prostate cancer.

    Prostate biopsy is the only test that can confirm the diagnosis. Tissue from the prostate is viewed

    underneath a microscope. Biopsy results are reported using something called a Gleason grade and a

    Gleason score.

    The Gleason grade is how aggressive the prostate cancer might be. It grades tumors on a scale of (1

    – 5), based on how different from normal tissue the cells are.

    Often, more than one Gleason grade is prese
