What is Prostate Cancer?

The prostate is a gland found only in men and is part of the reproductive system. The prostate is found just below the bladder and in front of the rectum. The tube that carries urine (the urethra) runs through the center of the prostate. Cancer occurs when cells grow unregulated. When this happens in the prostate, it is called prostate cancer.
