Prostate cancer statistics

The prostate is part of the male reproductive system. It is a small gland that sits just below the bladder. 

Prostate cancer starts when cells in the prostate become abnormal. These cells divide and grow to form a cancer.

The most common type of prostate cancer is adenocarcinoma.
