Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is a cancerous growth in the prostate gland that is one of the most common types of cancer in men. The cause of the cancer is unknown, but the male sex hormone testosterone has been found to influence the growth rate and spread of the tumour. Men who have a family history of prostate cancer are at an increased risk of developing cancer of the prostate and the condition most commonly affects elderly men.
