About Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a cancer of the prostate gland, a walnut-sized gland present in men, that lies below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Almost all prostate cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in the cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). Prostate cancer is usually slow growing and may take years to become large enough to be detected, often without any noticeable symptoms. Some types of prostate cancer may need minimal or no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in American men, behind lung cancer and colorectal cancer. In 2017, the American Cancer Society estimated that 161,360 men will be newly diagnosed with prostate cancer and 26,730 men will die from the disease — though many of them had lived with the disease for years prior to their deaths.

There are rare forms of prostate cancer as well which include: Sarcomas, Small cell carcinomas, Neuroendocrine tumors (other than small cell carcinomas) and Transitional cell carcinomas.
