Prostate Cancer

Abnormal Prostate Cell Growth

Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy (other than skin cancer) diagnosed in men. Prostate cancer is a disease defined by the abnormal growth of cells. These abnormal cells can proliferate in an uncontrolled way and, if left untreated, form tumors which may metastasize or spread to other parts of the body. Prostate cancer has the potential to grow and spread quickly, but for most men, it is a relatively slow growing disease.

For men who suspect that they might have prostate cancer, it is very important to understand the risk factors and symptoms. Knowing where the prostate is located in the body, and the functions of the prostate will explain the impacts of prostate cancer and prostate cancer treatment. Patients diagnosed with prostate cancer need to discuss with their doctors their particular type, aggressive or non-aggressive, of prostate cancer. This will allow the patient, working with their doctor to determine the most effective treatment for their cancer.

On an annual basis globally, approximately 1.1 Million Men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. More than 300,000 men will die of prostate cancer this year. These statistics show that prostate cancer is a widely variable disease.
