Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among men in the United States. This year alone, more than 190,000 men will be diagnosed with this disease and one in two of these men will be over the age of 72. The prostrate is the walnut-shaped gland in the male reproductive system that is responsible for producing the fluids that make up semen; when abnormal cells collect in the prostrate, cancer occurs. Fortunately for most men, this type of cancer is caught early through routine screening and check-ups.  Once the cancer begins to develop into a later stage, serious urinary problems will occur along with other symptoms.  There are a variety of treatment options available today to treat prostrate cancer
