Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in a man’s prostate a small walnut-shaped gland that produces the seminal fluid that maintain and transports sperm. Prostate cancer is the most common types of cancer in men. Prostate cancer usually grows slowly and in the beginning 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.
Prostate cancer that is discovered early — when it's still confined to the prostate gland — has a better chance of successful treatment.
