What is Prostate Cancer ?
The prostate gland is located behind the base of the penis, in front of the situated anus, and below the bladder.
It surrounds the urethra and carries urine and semen through the penis.
Its function is to produce seminal fluid and liquid in the semen and transport sperm count.
Prostate cancer is a harmful tumor that consists of cells from the prostate gland.
