What is Prostate Cancer?
Today, nearly 3 million American men are currently living with prostate cancer and It is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths for men in the U.S... To put the number into perspective, it is equivalent to the population of a city like Chicago, Illinois.
Prostate cancer is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate gland and affects millions of men worldwide. It can be detected early and easily treated, but most men don't get help until the disease is at a later stage. In addition, many men are unaware that certain lifestyle choices can increase their risk of developing prostate cancer.
The prostate is a small walnut-shaped gland in the pelvis of men. It is located next to the bladder and can be examined by getting a simple exam.
