Facts about Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a malignant growth in the tissue of the prostate, which is a gland in the male reproductive system. The prostate is located
below the bladder and in front of the rectum. It wraps around the urethra, the tube through which urine flows. Cancer can cause the tumor to grow, and this can result in urine retention.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers found in American men. In the curable stages, prostate cancer
is not symptomatic. It is important that men should begin prostate testing at age 50.

There are two tests used to diagnose the disease:

  • PSA blood test to measure the prostate antigen in the blood
  • DRE (digital rectal exam)sband and daughters.
