We all recognize that cancer is a disease, which is categorized by the innumerable growth of abnormal cells. However, the cells in any part of the body can become cancerous & spread to other areas of the body.
As the name indicates, prostate cancer is the one that starts in the prostate. It is a walnut-sized gland found only in males, which is located under the bladder & in front of the rectum. With age, the size of the prostate changes like in younger men, it is about the size of the walnut, but it can be much larger in older men. This type of cancer begins when cells in the prostate gland start to grow uncontrollably. Moreover, in its early stages, it doesn’t have any symptoms.
The prostate surrounds the urethra & produces prostate fluid, which is a part of semen. The urethra is a kind of tube that goes from the bladder to the end of the penis and carries urine & semen out of the body that passes through the prostate only.
