Prostate cancer is the most widespread form of cancer that affects men, and approximately 5,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. This form of cancer usually develops slowly and does not necessarily produce any symptoms. Forms of treatment are surgery or radiation therapy.
Prostate cancer is diagnosed with the help of a PSA blood test, a rectal examination, an ultrasound scan and a prostate biopsy. An MRI scan, a bone scan and an x-ray may also be necessary.
