It is a cancerous

60s and 70s.
The prostate is a small gland of size and shape of walnut and is an
integral part of the male reproductive system.
Prostate cancer is usually detected late in life and progresses very
slowly. The precise cause of prostate cancer is unknown,
environmental and genetic factors can play a role. The
factors like increasing age, exposure to certain chemicals,
sexually transmitted diseases have strong links with
prostate cancer. The fundamental of homoeopathy is that the
disease is total affliction of body. Homoeopathy
believes is treating the patient who is diseased rather than treating
isolated diseased organs of the body. This approach of homoeopathy is made
it possible to treat a wide spectrum
of deep-seated and difficult diseases to be managed
effectively, gently and safely.
There is an important consideration to be made while
starting treatment for prostate cancer in view of advanced
age at which the condition is detected. The treatment if too
radical and aggressive could have possibly more side effects
and risks, which could outweigh the possible benefits the
patient would derive from it. At this stage medical care,
which aims to reduce the symptoms without actually curing
the patient is warranted. This treatment is called as
palliative treatment. Homoeopathy, which is gentle,
effective, and devoid of side effects, can be the best
palliative treatment option.
Role of homoeopathy for as curative medicine for cancer of
Prostate is NOT significant. Homoeopathy helps to control the
disease, check symptoms and could help in controlling the
further spread (metastasis) of cancer. This is an empirical
