The prostate gland is also helpful in the production of semen (a fluid that carries sperm during ejaculation) in men. It produces thick white fluid, which is liquefied by a specific protein called prostate-specific antigen PSA. This fluid combines with the sperm produced by our testicles to form semen.
Prostatitis is a condition in which the prostate gland is swollen (red and swollen). Usually, inflammation occurs as a reaction to an infection. But in most cases of prostatitis, there is no evidence of infection. The prostate gland is sometimes associated with the lower urinary tract and sexual discomfort and dysfunction symptoms.

Causes of prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is more likely to occur when epithelial cells change.
A cancerous prostatic in the prostate gland is called intraepithelial neoplasia.
About 50% of men over the age of 50 have intraepithelial neoplasia.
First, the changes will begin slowly, and the cells will not become cancerous. However, they can become cancerous over time. Cancer cells are high or low grade.
High-grade cells are more likely to grow and increase, while lower-grade cells are less likely to grow, so there is no need to worry.
Infectious agents: Bacteria, fungi, mycoplasma, Other conditions:
- urethral stricture
- Benign prostatic
Doctors do not know how prostate cancer occurs, but these can be risks:
- Age: The risk remains after the age of 50 but is rarely seen before 45.
- Race or ethnicity
- Family history: If a man has a relationship or relationship with a history of prostate cancer, there is a risk.
- Genetic factors
There is some sign to suggest that other factors.
- Inflammation of the prostate
- Sexually transmitted infections
- Blood vessel

The doctor will do more tests if the cutter is doubted of having cancer:
PCA3 test: Looks for the PCA3 gene in urine.
Transactional ultrasound: can do this with a camera in the rectum.
Biopsy: The doctor will take tissue samples to examine under a microscope. Only a biopsy can detect the presence of cancer.
A person who needs monitoring during treatment needs an MRI or CT scan.
A surgeon performs a prostatectomy. They remove the prostate gland by laparoscopic or open surgery.
Breakthrough therapy rap: To deliver radiation treatment to the target radiator implants radioactive seeds in the prostate
Confirmed Radiation Therapy:
It targets a specific area, reducing the risk of healthy tissue. The second type called intensity-modulated radiation therapy,
Treatment depends on various factors. The doctor gives the best option to treat the person.
