Your Prostate Gland, Your Responsibility: Understanding the Risks, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options for Prostate Cancer
Dr. Daniel Vorobiof provides an overview of prostate cancer, including prevention tips and risk factors, diagnosis, treatment options, and specific questions to consider asking your doctor.
Prostate cancer occurs when healthy cells in the prostate start to differentiate from normal cells, growing uncontrollably and resulting in a tumor. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland in men, located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum, and is involved in the creation of semen.
Tumors on the prostate may be on one side of the gland or on both sides. Without treatment, the tumor can continue to grow and may spread (or metastasize) to other parts of the body.
