King Charles III was diagnosed with cancer after treatment for an enlarged prostate, as announced by Buckingham Palace on Monday. The palace confirmed that it’s not prostate cancer, although the specific type of cancer is still not known.
Around 80% of men aged over 70 have an enlarged prostate, which often causes symptoms like nocturia or difficulty urinating.In order to address urinary problems, the usual course of treatment entails a transurethral resection to remove extra prostate tissue.
A scope with a camera may be utilized to view the prostate and its surroundings during such treatments. On rare occasions, this technique can identify malignant tumors in the bladder or urethra. It can also identify blood in the urine, which may indicate a kidney or ureteral malignancy.
About 5–10% of the time, cancer is discovered during prostate enlargement operations, according to Dr. Julio Pow-Sang of the Moffitt Cancer Center. This is rare but not unheard of.
Buckingham Palace did not disclose the exact surgery that King Charles had, but they did say he is optimistic about his recovery and intends to resume his full public duties soon. The monarch’s situation serves as a reminder of the value of regular checkups with the doctor and prompt attention to health issues.
