Certain types of cancer such as blood cancer, bone cancer or colon cancer can all cause anemia.
Prostate cancer is the abnormal growth of cells in the prostate gland, a small gland that produces and transports semen.
People with prostate cancer sometimes have bleeding from the prostate gland, which can appear like blood in semen.
Bleeding and blood cell abnormalities can cause anemia.
Experts suggest that anemia may reduce the overall resilience of cancer patients after the course of treatment.
Cancer patients of older people lose a significant amount of functions (the ability to perform daily activities and tasks) when suffering from anemia, compared to those who suffer only from cancer.
Therefore, people with cancer if there is a diagnosis of anemia or the risk of anemia should soon take preventive measures to ensure that the number of red blood cells is within a healthy threshold.
