Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer happens when cells in the prostate gland grow abnormally and out of control. (The prostate is a small organ below a man's bladder that makes fluid for semen.) The cancer cells can grow and spread to other parts of the body.

Prostate cancer is usually slow-growing, and it can often be cured.
