How well do you understand Prostate Cancer?

The prostate gland is a gland found in the male reproductive system and is primarily responsible for the production of the fluid found in semen.

Prostate Cancer occurs when abnormal development of cells takes place in the prostate gland. The cells may continue multiplying in an uncontrollable rate and leads to the increase in size of the walnut sized gland.

Symptoms of the prostate cancer in the early stages are usually not visible, however, as the disease progresses, the symptoms include;

  • Frequent need to urinate.
  • Difficulty in urinating
  • Discomfort while urinating
  • Blood visible in urine / semen.
  • Pain in lower back / upper thighs / hips.
