Prostate cancer basics



• The prostate makes a fluid that is part of semen.

• Prostate cancer often starts in the cells that

make fluid.

• Cancer cells may form a tumor since they don’t

die as normal cells do.

• Cancer cells can spread to other body parts

through lymph or blood.

• Most men with prostate cancer will not die

from it.

• Some men have prostate cancer that grows fast.
