Prostate Cancer Symptoms

The prostate gland is a male reproductive organ located at the neck of the urinary bladder, which produces substances that are found in semen for the transportation of sperm during reproduction.

Prostate gland is an interesting organ which will get bigger as men get older. The prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatic hypertrophy) can press on the urethra and cause various difficulties with urianation.  The symptoms of the Prostate Cancer are similar to the symptoms of prostate enlargement, so you should seek immediate medical help for any urinary difficulties, especially if you are over 40.
