Prostate is a small walnut gland found in a male’s lower abdomen. It’s located under the bladder
surrounded by the urethra. The prime function of the prostate is the production of seminal fluid which is
regulated by the hormone testosterone.
When an abnormal, malignant growth of cells — which is called a tumor — forms in the prostate, it’s called prostate cancer. This cancer can spread to other areas of the body. In these cases, because the cancer is made of cells from the prostate, it’s still called prostate cancer.
Types Of Prostate cancer
Adenocarcinoma is the most common type of prostate cancer. This is a cancer type that grows in the tissue of the prostate gland.
Prostate cancer can also be categorised depending on it’s growth rate.
Agressive Prostate Cancer
Non-Agressive Prostate cancer
