Prostate Cancer,

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men. The progression of prostate cancer is usually slow. Cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the prostate gland grow faster than normal cells and refuse to die.

Widespread screening has led to earlier diagnosis and an increase in cases reported over the last several years. Prostate cancer is often detected by a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test or a digital rectal exam (DRE).

In the early stages, there are often no symptoms. Later, some men may notice urinary frequency or difficult urination. Rarely are swelling in the legs or discomfort in the pelvic area noticed. If untreated many men will experience progression of the disease, but with the treatments available now, most men can expect to live as long as other men their age.

Treatment side effects may include bladder control problems and erectile dysfunction (impotence). Consequently, new and more effective ways to treat prostate cancer, with fewer side effects, need to be developed.
