Living with Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is cancer of the prostate gland, which is the gland in men that produces much of the fluid that makes up semen. Early prostate cancer usually doesn't cause any symptoms, but when it becomes more advanced, prostate cancer can cause problems passing urine. It more rarely can cause, blood in the urine or impotence. Prostate cancer can be watched closely (called active surveillance), or treated with surgery, radiation therapy, cryotherapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy and/or vaccine therapy. The survival rate for prostate cancer can vary depending on stage of diagnosis, type of treatment, and other factors.
