Prostate Cancer affects the prostate gland, the gland produces some of the fluid in semen and plays a role in urine control in men. It is located below the bladder and in front of the rectum. However, the size of the prostate changes with age. In younger men, it’s size revolves around a walnut but can be much larger in older men.

It is not completely clear what causes prostate cancer. Doctors say that the prostate cancer begins when some cells in the prostate become abnormal and causes certain changes. Alterations in the abnormal cells DNA leads to the growth and divides the cells more quickly. The abnormal cells live while others die.
