Questions About Prostate Cancer

How dangerous is prostate cancer?
Prostate Cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. It usually grows slowly and initially remains in the prostate gland only, where it might not cause serious harm. However, the earlier it is detected the better the chances of treatment. If not treated and detected the cancer can move to other parts of the body and become more aggressive.
