Prostate cancers

Prostate cancer is a cancer that develops in the prostate gland. The prostate is a small gland in the pelvis of men. Prostate cancer is a type of urological cancer.

How is it diagnosed?

The symptoms of prostate cancer can include changes in urination, sexual functioning, and pain in the lower back and hips. Prostate cancers can be detected using the prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test, or a digital rectal examination (DRE). A biopsy of the affected area will be undertaken to confirm a cancer diagnosis.
