Welcome to the Prostate Cancer Channel
Prostate cancer, the second most common type of cancer among American men, occurs when abnormal cell growth takes place in the prostate gland. In a lot of cases, prostate cancer is not a problem. Either no symptoms are present or the disease never becomes a serious threat to a man's health. Only a small percentage of men are actually treated for it, and most men with the condition do not die from this disease.
Welcome to the Prostate Cancer Health Channel on eMedTV. Even though this is a common cancer with a favorable prognosis, any diagnosis of cancer can be scary. This eMedTV health channel is designed to give you the information you need so that you and your healthcare provider can make an informed decision regarding your treatment process. Hundreds of articles on prostate cancer are provided, from common symptoms to the diagnostic process to questions to ask your healthcare provider once a diagnosis has been made.
