What is Prostate Cancer?
Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the prostate gland, a small gland in the male reproductive system. It typically develops slowly and may not cause symptoms in its early stages. As the cancer grows, symptoms may include difficulty urinating, blood in the urine, and erectile dysfunction.
When is it necessary to see a doctor?
If you experience urinary symptoms such as frequency, urgency, or difficulty urinating, or if you have a family history of prostate cancer, it's time to see a doctor for a prostate cancer evaluation. A doctor can perform diagnostic tests such as a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test or biopsy to diagnose prostate cancer and recommend treatment options such as surgery, radiation therapy, or watchful waiting depending on the stage and severity of the cancer.
