PROSTATE CANCER

WHAT IS PROSTATE CANCER?

Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in the prostate. The prostate is a small, walnut-shaped gland in males that produces seminal fluid which nourishes and transports the sperm.

Most prostate cancers grow slowly and are confined to the prostate gland, where they may not cause serious harm. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or no treatment at all, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer which has the best chance for successful treatment if detected early — when it’s still confined to the prostate gland.

It is important to discuss your treatment options, including the goals and possible side effects of every option, to make a decision that best suits your needs.
