Recently, the former Republican presidential nominee called Mitt Romney disclosed his past health history. He indicated that he had gone through prostate surgery the previous year due to a growing tumor detected in his body. The announcement was a sign that he would probably run for a Senate post that was currently being held by Orin Hatch in Utah.

The surgery was done successfully by a seasoned expert called Dr. Thomas Ahlering of UC Irvine Hospital in California. The prognosis was said to be in stable condition as he joined 161, 360 other men diagnosed with the illness during 2017. The American Cancer fraternity estimated a slight increase of new cases of prostate cancer for 2018.
Prostate cancer is likely to affect older men as a recent study indicated that close to 6 cases out of 10 get detected in men aged above 65 years and rare in those below the age of 40. On average, most men get diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 66, and Romney celebrated his 70th birthday in March 2017 thus making him susceptible to prostate cancer.
Mitt Romney joins the list of other United States politicians who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and successfully received treatment. One of them is Colin Powel, the former Secretary of State who underwent surgery at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center to get rid of his prostate gland. Another case was identified with John Kerry in 2002 when he was running for the President of United States position. Kerry received treatment has experienced no recurrence since then.

There exist two prostate cancer treatment procedures such as radiation method and surgery treatment which comes hand in hand with different sets of pros and cons.
