Prostate Cancer

About Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer usually occurs in a man’s prostate which exists directly under the bladder, in front of the rectum. Prostate cancer begins when some cells in the prostate gland become abnormal. Mutations in the abnormal cells’ DNA cause the cells to grow and divide more rapidly than normal cells do. The accumulating abnormal cells form a tumor that has the ability spread to other parts of the body as well.

While a prostate cancer usually grows slowly and initially remains confined to the prostate gland, there are a few kinds of prostate cancers that can cause serious harm.

Causes of Prostate Cancer

There is no clear study to show what specifically the causes of Prostate Cancer are. However, attributes such as age, race, lifestyle, medications, smoking, workplace exposures, sexually transmitted diseases, obesity and genetics are a few factors to name.
