Prostate cancer is a malignant disease with high incidence in dogs aged over 10 years, favored by sexual hyperfunction associated with a high protein diet. Chronic inflammatory lesions (prostatitis, cysts, etc.) are precancerous lesions and undiagnosed and treated early can degenerate into malignant lesions. Diagnosis is based on laboratory tests: ultrasound, urine cytology, contrast radiography, puncture aspiration through ecography or trans-perineal, blood works and specific detection of tumor markers. By using several diagnostic methods we are trying to establish the baseline of malignization with the beneficial consequences of establishing early, curable therapy protocols with consequent prolongation of survival and increased comfort. Early screening for diagnosis and treatment of various diseases, like chronic inflammatory lesions (prostatitis, prostatic cysts, etc.) may prevent malignancy or even block or allow the detection of the process of cancerization in early stages with decreasing tumor metastasis and reduce the chances of suffering patients.
