Marriage was not only a form of a bond between two people who love each other. If constructed properly, marriage can bring good effects, especially for those who have a partner with prostate cancer.
In a recent study found that 40 percent of married men who develop prostate cancer less likely to die from the disease than those who are single. A happy marriage seems to have a strong protective effect against damage caused by cancer and tumor.
Beside make men bone stronger, marriage also have many other benefits, as quoted from Dailymail, it remains unclear why matrimony support prospects for survival. However, there is a theory that says that people who are divorced or widowed are more at risk of developing this disease, is caused by the damaging effects of stress their bodies.
This also may lead to men who are married are more likely to receive medical assistance at the start of symptoms because of the encouragement from their wives. The study, published in the latest issue of the Journal of Urology in Canada supports the findings of previous similar studies that also showed the health benefits of a stable marriage relationship.
In 2011, an international study involving 163,000 volunteers find unmarried men with prostate cancer and 30 percent more likely to die from their disease than their counterparts who were married. Married men also have a slow development in prostate cancer has been handled more quickly.
In the UK, nearly 32,000 cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed each year and 10,000 people die because of it. It would be equivalent to more than one person dies every hour.
The risk of this disease increases with age. Men over 50 years are more likely to tumor progression, especially if there is a strong genetic component to it.
To see whether the marital status has a significant impact on mortality, the experts at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, studied nearly 116,000 people throughout 1988 and 2003 to see how many patients with prostate cancer during that period.
When they get a match between the results with data on marital status, they find married men are more likely to come see their doctor with lower levels of tumor and low progress. In terms of mortality, they found 40 percent of unmarried men are more likely to end up in deaths from this disease.
Five years after a diagnosis, the researchers found, 89 percent of married men were still alive, compared with only 80 percent of those who are not married. In a report on their findings the researchers said men who are not married have a higher risk of death from prostate cancer.
More specifically, it is compared to the married men of the same age, hobby, tumor stage and grade.
Cancer is not the only case where the wedding turned out to be very profitable. A 2010 study at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, United States, also found that a happy marriage can help to ward off the suffering of arthritis.
In patients whose happy marriage just have less reported about joint pain than those who are single or less happy marriage. This is due to their emotional stability that has an effect as a pain reliever.
However, early diagnosis is essential in order to improve the life prospects.
