What Causes Prostate Cancer?
In order to deal properly with prostate cancer we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.
We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow prostate cancer to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind prostate cancer consists of three steps:
Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors
Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to prostate cancer. For example, vitamin A need.
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
having had a small bowel resection
much reduced sense of smell
reduced sense of taste
thick cracked heel calluses
bumps on backs of arms
... and so on
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of prostate cancer.

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of prostate cancer or prostate cancer, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as Vitamin A Requirement
. Carotene compounds called lycopenes, which are found in high amounts in tomatoes, have been shown to protect against prostate cancer. Several studies have shown that males consuming tomato sauce receive some protection against cancer.
Although there are cases of post-prostatectomy prostate cancer after apparent complete remission (from reawakened metastases), this is rare.
