According to a research done by Weizmann Institute and the Wolfson Hospital in Israel, a chemical substance was found in women’s tears which had a positive effect such as reducing the testosterone in men.  As this also decreased the sexual desire in men, this finding can be used in the treatment of prostate cancer said Prof. Noam Sobel because as the level of hormones gets reduced, many diseases can be prevented or treated and one of the leading diseases is prostate cancer. Further he said; “Current used methods today have side effects, but this method can safely be used without causing any side effects”.

What is Prostate cancer?

The prostate is a gland found only in men. The size of the prostate varies with age as in younger men, it is the size of a walnut, but it can be much larger in older men. The tube that carries urine (the urethra) runs through the center of the prostate and the prostate contains cells that make some of the fluid (semen) that protects and nourishes the sperm.

The prostate begins to develop before birth and keeps on growing until a man reaches adulthood. It is the male hormone called androgens that cause this growth. If male hormone levels are low, the prostate gland will not grow to full size. In older men, though, the part of the prostate around the urethra may keep on growing and this causes BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) which can lead to problems passing urine because the prostate can press on the urethra. BPH is a problem that often must be treated, but it is not cancer.

There are several types of cells in the prostate, but nearly all prostate cancers start in the gland cells. This kind of cancer is known as adenocarcinoma. Some prostate cancers can grow and spread quickly, but most of the time, prostate cancer grows slowly. Autopsy studies show that many older men (and even younger men) who died of other diseases also had prostate cancer that never caused a problem during their lives. These studies showed that as many as 7 to 9 out of 10 men had prostate cancer by age 80, but neither they nor their doctors even knew they had it.
