    What is ductal prostate cancer and how is it different from other prostate cancers?

    I thought there was only plain Prostate cancer, then I read about different type, this ductal. Anyone here have it?

      HotRodTodd,
      When you have ductal prostate cancer it is very rare. Less than 1% of men with prostate cancer get this. Normally with protate cancer it is in the prostate gland but ductal is in the urethra or below it. It metastasixes quicker and is a faster growing more aggressive prostate cancer. I hope this answers your question. Best of luck to you, Carm RN.
