Prostate Cancer – What is prostate cancer? Prostate cancer occurs when cells in the prostate gland grow out of control.
Some prostate cancers can grow and spread quickly but most grow slowly. There are often no early prostate cancer symptoms, but some men have urinary symptoms and discomfort. Prostate cancer treatment options are surgery, chemotherapy, cryotherapy, hormonal therapy, and/or radiation. In some instances, doctors recommend “watchful waiting.”
All men are at risk for developing prostate cancer. Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men.
About one man in nine will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, but only one in 41 will die of this disease. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 66. There are other factors, such as age, race, and family history that may contribute to the risk.
