Were you looking for information about Prostate Cancer? Prostrat cancer is a common misspelling of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer occurs when cancer cells have formed in the tissues of the prostate. Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer among men in the United States. This type of cancer is common in older men, and by age 50, about one-third of American men have signs of prostate cancer. Once a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, there are several treatment options available based on the patient's age, whether the cancer has spread, and other medical conditions he may have. Most men with prostate cancer, however, do not die from the disease.
