The Prostate gland is small gland situated at the base of the urinary bladder in males, and surrounds the urethra (tube that carries urine). A cancer of this organ is known as prostate cancer. It is one of the common cancers found in men. This type of cancer starts slowly may not generally need treatment but in some cases, it becomes aggressive and spreads causing a serious condition.1
