Prostate cancer is a very common cancer in men. It usually develops slowly, so there may be no signs of serious illness for many years. Almost 25 % of all men will get prostate cancer but only 7% will actually die from this type of cancer.
What are symptoms of prostate cancer?
Usually symptoms appear until the prostate is large enough to affect the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the penis (this is called the urethra).
