Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer in men in the United States, after skin cancer. Of all the men who are diagnosed with cancer each year, more than one-fourth have prostate cancer. Prostate cancer affects the prostate, a gland in a man’s reproductive system that makes and stores seminal fluid. Prostate cancer is usually treatable if caught in time. Prostate cancer often has no symptoms. Sometimes, even when symptoms are present, men do not seek medical advice. However, if prostate cancer is found early, it can often be cured. The symptoms of prostate cancer are similar to those produced by a common disease of the prostate, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), and include difficulty uninating and a frequent or urgent need to urinate.
