But after all, what is the prostate?
It is a gland present in men, located in front of the rectum, below the bladder, surrounding the upper part of the urethra (the canal through which urine passes). The prostate is not responsible for erection or orgasm. Its function is to produce a liquid that makes up part of the semen, which nourishes and protects sperm.
In young men, the prostate is the size of a plum, but its size increases with advancing age.
What is prostate cancer?
Cells are the smallest parts of the human body. Throughout life, cells multiply, replacing the oldest with new ones. But in some cases, uncontrolled growth of cells may occur, forming tumors that may be benign or malignant. Prostate cancer, in most cases, grows slowly and does not even give signs during life or threaten the health of the man. In other cases, it can grow rapidly, spread to other organs. Prevent yourself!
