What is the prostate?

The prostate is a gland that helps make semen. Semen is the milky fluid that carries sperm from the testicles through the penis during ejaculation. The prostate is part of the male reproductive system.

The prostate is about the size and shape of a walnut. It has sections, which are called lobes. The prostate lies low in the pelvis, below the bladder and in front of the rectum. The prostate surrounds part of the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the bladder and through the penis.

Early-stage prostate cancer means that cancer cells are found only in your prostate. Compared with many other cancers, prostate cancer grows slowly. This means that it can take 10 to 30 years before a prostate tumor gets big enough to cause symptoms or for doctors to find it. Most men who have prostate cancer will die of something other than prostate cancer.

  • Prostate cancer is most common in men age 65 and older, although younger men can be diagnosed with it as well.
  • By age 80, more than half of all men have some cancer in their prostate.
  • African American men tend to be diagnosed at younger ages and with faster-growing prostate cancer than men of other races.

My husbands family high risk for prostate

by My4Boyz

Cancer, my husbands father had to have CIRCUMCISION done at 40 because of the high prostate cancer risk. It was a SURGERY at that point and it was extremely painful for him. Much easier to have done younger.
When I had my first 2 sons, I was very young and just thought it was the norm. As a matter of fact, it was covered under our health insurance. They suggested having it done for cleanliness issues as well as social issues. Really, Do not berate me for this. I was 16 and the doctors at the time gave me the facts and I did it.
By number 3 and 4 I was older and new information was coming out each day about it

I cited a summary of research from the national cancer institute that showed you were completely in error about a link between smoking and prostate cancer.
i also cited a quote from a New York Times Magazine article which showed that you were completely in error when you said there was a link between a high fat diet and heart disease.
i cited facts that showed you were 100% wrong, and of course you will never admit it.
maybe actually do five minutes of research before you post and maybe you won't make such a fool out of yourself.
for a biologist to show such ignorance on these matters is frightening.
