The excerpt below is from a series of articles on cancer of the prostate …
There are many different types of cancer, many of them publicized quite vocally, but there is one cancer that very often gets overlooked and doesn’t get mentioned as often as it should, this cancer is cancer of the prostate gland.
Prostate cancer starts of by cells found in the prostate mutating and multiplying causing cancerous cells to develop in the prostate; the prostate is a gland that produces fluid to help carry semen during ejaculation in males.
Once the cancerous cells have taken control of the prostate they can find their way into other parts of the body, the most common places are parts of the bone structure and lymph nodes.
A person who has cancer of the prostate would not know it unless they have had a prostate specific antigen test which is done by taking a blood sample or having a physical test, which is normally carried out by checking inside the rectum as the prostate sits against the rectum’s outer wall.
