Prostate cancer stages, symptoms and signs
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. Many men never find out they have it. At this stage, the cancer is small, but it may have spread to other parts of the body.
There are different stages of prostate cancer. The stage of a man’s cancer tells you how much it has grown and spread. It helps your doctor plan treatment.

Stage 0 Prostate Cancer
Stage 0 prostate cancer is a very early form of this disease, when it is confined only to the prostate gland. Stage 0 is also called carcinoma in situ or prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia. This stage represents a non-cancerous (benign) condition in which there are abnormal cells in the prostate gland. These cells do not have the ability to invade nearby tissues and organs. There are no symptoms of stage 0 prostate cancer, because the abnormal cells are confined to the prostate gland and do not grow out of control. The cancerous cells are found during an examination of the prostate using a biopsy or transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Stage 0 prostate cancer may progress to a higher stage as its cells grow and multiply.
Stage 1 Prostate Cancer
Stage 1 prostate cancer is characterized by this disease’s presence in one or more of the following: regional lymph nodes, seminal vesicles, perineal urethra, bladder neck or prostatic capsule. In this stage, the cancerous cells invade other tissues of the body but have not spread beyond these tissues. Symptoms that suggest that you may have stage 1 prostate cancer include increased urination frequency and/or urgency, blood
The prostate gland is a small walnut-sized gland that surrounds the neck of the urinary bladder and is located just below the male reproductive organs. It produces a fluid that is part of semen, the fluid that is ejaculated during an orgasm. Though benign in most cases, prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of death among men in the United States.
Treatment options for prostate cancer include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormone therapy. Additionally, there are several natural treatment methods for prostate cancer such as herbs, foods and vitamins. These methods have not been proven to cure prostate cancer but can be used in conjunction with other treatments to reduce side effects and improve quality of life.
**Prostate Cancer Stages**
The stages of prostate cancer are used to measure how far the cancer has spread beyond its original location inside the prostate gland or outside in the surrounding area. The first stage of prostate cancer occurs when it has not yet spread outside of the prostate gland or into nearby tissues or lymph nodes. The second stage develops when it spreads beyond nearby tissues and into lymph nodes but not into other parts of the body such as bone, liver or lungs. Stage III occurs when it spreads beyond lymph nodes to other areas such as bone, liver or lungs but has not yet metast
What is this word? It refers to the several on-goings in European art and culture during the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. The word renaissance means “rebirth”, but it also means the time period that occurred in these years. The term is most commonly used to describe the rebirth of interest in classical antiquity and a move away from the Medieval period’s religious themes.
The renaissance began in Italy during the late 1400’s. It spread throughout Europe, ushering in a new era of cultural development. During this time, there was an unprecedented growth of science, technology, commerce, and politics.
Towards the end of the Renaissance (1650), England had become a powerful nation, and had begun colonizing North America.
The Renaissance was a period of cultural change, especially in the visual arts, that took place in Europe from the 14th through the 17th centuries. The term comes from the French word for “rebirth.” The Renaissance is most famous for its art and architecture.
The Renaissance began in Florence, Italy, in the late 14th century. Italian scholars traveled to other parts of Europe to study ancient Greek and Latin texts and mores and returned home with new ideas about politics, science, art, and philosophy. A cultural movement called humanism raised the value of people over religion. The result was a flowering of art, architecture, music, science, literature, and philosophy. The Renaissance spread to northern Europe as well as Italy. It lasted until the mid-17th century.
In Painting: In the early Renaissance artists tried to create realistic paintings that duplicated what they saw in nature. But by mid-15th century many painters were creating works that were more concerned with the artist’s feelings and less concerned with accurate representation of nature. Over time artists became more interested in creating an effect on viewers than creating an accurate picture of reality; this new way of thinking about painting is known as mannerism.
Artists began to focus on showing emotion through facial expressions
The Renaissance period is a historical term referring to a cultural movement in the period between the 14th and 17th centuries, beginning in Italy and spreading throughout Europe. The term has also been used to describe the historical era that began with the fall of the Roman Empire and ended around 1600 in Europe, or around 1750 in Western culture as a whole.
The term Renaissance is also used more loosely to refer to all of the artistic developments occurring during this time period. This usage has only a small amount of overlap with “Renaissance art,” since not all Renaissance artworks were created in the same historical period, and many date from before the Renaissance era.
Although there is no precise date for when this movement began, many scholars agree that it was launched by several figures who lived in Florence between 1350 and 1400. These figures include artists such as Giotto di Bondone, Donatello and Brunelleschi, poets such as Dante Alighieri and Petrarch, and scholars such as Leon Battista Alberti and Francesco Petrarca (also known as Petrarch).
The Italian Renaissance was unique because it was during this time that Italy saw a drastic change in philosophy. During this time there was an increase of interest in humanism (the study of
