Waht is Prostate Cancer? Signs and Symptoms of a Prostate Cancer?

by Yashoda Hospital Yashoda Hospital
Cancer that develops in the prostate is known as prostate cancer. The prostate is a small walnut-shaped gland found in males that is responsible for producing the seminal fluid which helps in nourishing and transporting the sperm. While many prostate cancers develop slowly and are limited to the prostate gland without causing any serious trouble, some prostate cancers may spread quickly to other parts of the body, which can be fatal. Prostate cancers may be treated successfully if detected early and are limited to the prostate gland.

Types of prostate cancer

Most prostate cancers are categorized into one type only, known as Adenocarcinomas in which cancer occurs from the cells of the prostate gland. These cells are responsible for making the prostate fluid that is found in the semen. Other types of prostate cancers that are rare and may originate in the prostate include-

Small cell carcinomas
Neuroendocrine tumors (excluding the small cell carcinomas)
Transitional cell carcinomas
Sarcomas
