What is Prostate Cancer?

Prostate cancer develops when cells mutate and multiply uncontrollably in the prostate. Such cells can metastasize (spread) to other areas of the body, particularly lymph nodes and bones. Because of its location the cancer often affects urination, ejaculation and albeit rarely defecation.
