Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men after skin cancer with 1 in 9 men receiving a diagnosis in their lifetimes. It’s more commonly found in men over age 65, and African-American men are more likely to be diagnosed. However, because of regular screening and advances in prostate cancer treatments, most men with prostate cancer do not die from it.

Several types of cells are found in the prostate, but almost all prostate cancers develop from the gland cells (the cells that make the prostate fluid that is added to the semen). The medical term for a cancer that starts in gland cells is adenocarcinoma.

Prostate cancer is somewhat different from other types of cancers because it’s typically slow-growing and can sometimes be monitored for years before treatment is needed. Learn more about how prostate cancer is detected and treated so you can take an active role in making decisions about your care.
