Prostate Cancer

What is Prostate Cancer?

Prostate Cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the prostate gland, which is a small walnut-shaped gland in men that produces seminal fluid. It typically affects older men, and its risk increases with age. Early-stage prostate cancer often has no symptoms, but as it progresses, it can cause difficulty urinating, blood in urine or semen, and pain. Screening tests like PSA blood tests and digital rectal exams can help detect it early. Treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and active surveillance for low-risk cases. Early detection and appropriate treatment are crucial for better outcomes.
