Prostate Cancer, also known as carcinoma of the prostate, it is the developement of cancer in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing, however, some grow relatively quickly. The cancer cells may spread from the prostate to other parts of the body particularly the bones and lymph nodes.
Factors that increase the risk of prostate cancer include: older age, a family history of the disease, and race. About 99% of cases occur in those over the age of 50. Having a first degree relative with the disease increases the risk 2 to 3 fold. In the United States it is more common in the African American population than the White American population. Other factors that may be involved include a diet high in processed meat, red meat, or milk products or low in certain vegetables. An association with gonorrhea has been found, but a reason for this relationship has not been identified. Prostate cancer is diagnosed by biopsy.

This disease cannot be detected at early stage. It can be detected when the infection spread all over your body
