Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in a man's prostate a small walnut-shaped gland that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm.
Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Prostate cancer usually grows slowly and initially remains confined to the prostate gland, where it may not cause serious harm. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly.
The prostate is an exocrine gland of the male reproductive system, and exists directly under the bladder, in front of the rectum. An exocrine gland is one whose secretions end up outside the body e.g. prostate gland and sweat glands. It is approximately the size of a walnut.
The urethra - a tube that goes from the bladder to the end of the penis and carries urine and semen out of the body - goes through the prostate. There are thousands of tiny glands in the prostate - they all produce a fluid that forms part of the semen. This fluid also protects and nourishes the sperm. When a male has an orgasm the seminal-vesicles secrete a milky liquid in which the semen travels. The liquid is produced in the prostate gland, while the sperm is kept and produced in the testicles. When a male climaxes (has an orgasm) contractions force the prostate to secrete this fluid into the urethra and leave the body through the penis.
Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms. Advanced prostate cancers can cause some symptoms, such as:
•Problems passing urine, including a slow or weak urinary stream or the need to urinate more often, especially at night
•Blood in the urine (hematuria)
•Trouble getting an erection (impotence)
•Pain in the hips, back (spine), chest (ribs), or other areas from cancer spread to bones
•Weakness or numbness in the legs or feet, or even loss of bladder or bowel control from cancer pressing on the spinal cord
