If you are a man over the age of 50, you may have an increased risk of developing prostate cancer. The prostate is part of the male reproductive system and is located below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer among men in America (second only to skin cancer). Although the exact cause of prostate cancer is still unknown, researchers believe that age, race, genetics, and diet may be risk factors for the disease.
