What is prostate cancer?
Prostate cancer is a disease in which cells in the prostate start growing abnormally and uncontrollably.
The prostate is a walnut-shaped organ that contributes fluid to semen and helps expel semen during ejaculation.
Almost all prostate cancers are adenocarcinomas (which originates from the glandular cells of the prostate) and most are slow growing. However, they may cause symptoms that require timely interventions, such as restricting urine flow or sexual function.
