What you need to know about prostate cancer
Although it grows slowly, prostate is one of the most common types of cancer in men. According to the Mayo Clinic, prostate occurs in the small gland where seminal fluid transports sperm.
Much like other types of cancer, the earlier prostate cancer is detected, the more likely treatment will work. Prostate cancer spreads quickly and easily. If it is not caught early, it can spread through your bloodstream to your vital organs.
Some treatments include radiation therapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy and surgery. Your doctor can help you decide what option would be best for you based upon your specific situation and stage in the disease.
