Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the prostate. The prostate is below the bladder, in front of the rectum, and found only in the male reproductive system. This gland is partly responsible for the production of fluid that is part of the semen.
All men are at risk for prostate cancer. The most common risk factor is age- the older the man is, the higher his risk for developing prostate cancer. Men that are at an increased risk include African-American men or those that have a family history of prostate cancer.
There are various treatment plans that your doctor and you will pick between for the best results.
There is no specific way to prevent prostate cancer due to many risk factors being uncontrollable like age; however, there are precautions that can be taken to lower your risk.
