Be aware of your prostate cancer risk.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men. The incidence of prostate cancer has increased over the past 20 years. It is more likely to develop in older men and in African-American men. Because prostate cancer typically grows very slowly, without causing any symptoms, it often isn’t detected until it’s in an advanced stage. For those reasons, men should be aware of their prostate cancer risk.

What is prostate cancer?

The prostate is about the size of a walnut and is located near the bladder. The front of the prostate surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder and out through the penis. Any change in the size or shape of the prostate can make this tube narrower, making it hard to urinate. Prostate cancer can occur over time, causing frequent urination, pain during orgasms, and blood in the urine. Learn more about the prostate now.
