Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a cancer of the male prostate gland, which is a small walnut-sized gland that produces seminal fluid. Prostate cancer is common and there are more than 200,000 cases diagnosed per year in the U.S. Symptoms can include difficulty with urination, but, commonly there are no symptoms at all. This is why screening using the PSA test and DRE tests are vital. Once an abnormality is detected, your doctor will use a series of lab test and imaging to diagnose this condition, as well as a biopsy. Some types of prostate cancers are slow growing, and given it is most likely found in men 60+ years, observation and constant monitoring are recommended. However, some prostate cancers can be very aggressive and require radiation, hormone therapy, chemo therapy, surgery, or other treatments. Your physician will formulate a plan of treatment based on your specific diagnosis.
