What is prostate cancer?
Prostate cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells are found in the tissue of the prostate. It is the most common cancer in men (excluding skin cancers) and second leading cause of cancer death in men in the United States.
The prostate is a gland that makes and stores semen. It is located in front of the rectum, below the bladder, and surrounds the top part of the urethra.
Prostate cancer typically grows slowly over time. Finding the disease early through regular screenings can prevent spread of the disease, reduce side effects and help men live longer. In some cases, prostate cancer can be observed rather than treated immediately – also called active surveillance.
