Prostate Cancer: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Prostate cancer is a significant global health concern, with the World Health Organization (WHO) reporting it as the second most common cancer in men worldwide. Prostate cancer is a malignancy that develops in the prostate gland, a part of the male reproductive system.

It occurs when abnormal cells in the prostate gland grow uncontrollably, forming tumors. The prostate gland is responsible for producing some of the fluid in semen. Risk factors include age, family history, and certain genetic mutations. Symptoms may include urinary issues, erectile dysfunction, and pelvic pain.
