What is Prostate Cancer?

Prostate cancer develops in prostate, a small walnut shaped gland in men situated just below the base of bladder, surrounding the first part of urethra through which its secretion i.e. prostatic fluid or seminal fluid passes.

The function of prostate gland is to produce prostatic fluid that nourishes and transports sperms. It is the second most common cancer in men(over 50 years of age) after skin cancer. Usually, prostate cancer grows very slowly and may not cause significant harm yet some types of prostate cancers, being more aggressive, can spread quickly without treatment.

Prostate cancer is common in men over 50 years of age and the risk of developing prostate cancer increasing with aging . In the early stages of development of Prostate cancer, there may not be any symptoms. However, symptoms that can appear at later stage include:

What are the types of Prostate Cancer?

Almost all prostate cancers are:

  • Adenocarcinomas called Acinar Adenocarcinomas that develop from the gland cells that make prostate fluid that is added to semen.
  • Ductal adenocarcinoma starts in the cells that line the ducts (tubes) of the prostate gland
  • Transitional cell (Urothelial cells) carcinomas - starts in the cells that line the tube carrying urine to the outside of the body (Urethra). This type of cancer usually starts in the bladder and spreads into the prostate.
  • Squamous Cell Cancer - develop from flat cells that cover the prostate. They tend to grow and spread more quickly than adenocarcinoma of the prostate

Other rare Types of Prostate Cancers are:

  • Small cell prostate cancer - develops as small round cells and is extremely aggressive and detected only after it has metastasized i.e. spread to other areas and organs.
  • Neuroendocrine tumors (other than small cell carcinomas) - are present in neuroendocrine system, which is comprised of nerve and gland cells, responsible for making and releasing hormones into bloodstream
  • Sarcomas - can grow in Lymphatic Vessels, Blood Vessels and Smooth Muscles of the Prostate.

Some time despite Prostate cancer treatments, the malignant cells remain in prostate. As a result, malignancy may recur in prostate area or in other areas of body. Such type of prostate cancer is termed as Recurrent Prostate Cancer.
