INZULIA 40 mg is hormonal therapeutic drug for treating advanced-stage prostate carcinoma

 Prostate cancer is taking place within the prostate gland due to the abnormal growth & division of the cells.  The prostate is a small gland present in males responsible for the production of semen fluid. There is an estimate that in the 27 European Union Nations, around 23% of the new carcinoma cases are of the prostate in males. And this is accounting for approximately 9% of the cancerous deaths of men.  There is an early and localized prostate carcinoma stage. This pertains to the abnormal growth of the cells within the prostate region only.

Looking at the advanced stage, there are two distinct categories of carcinoma in the prostate:

  • Locally advanced stage

In this stage, the growth of the cells spreads to the external region like the adjoining areas or glands which are lying closer to the prostate.

  • Metastatic prostate carcinoma

This stage takes place when the prostate cancerous cells spread to various distant regions of the body.

The doctors work in closer association with the patient for developing a tailored treatment plan. Some of the treatment options for prostate carcinoma include radiation therapy, surgical procedure, chemotherapy, or targeted hormonal treatment.

One hormonal therapeutic drug which is utilized for the treatment of prostate cancer as growth that has spread to other regions of the body is Inzulia 40 Mg.
