What is Prostate Cancer?

Cancer develops when healthy cells grow out of control. Prostate cancer is typically different from other forms of cancer because it usually grows slowly and can even go unnoticed and without symptoms, sometimes for years. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for men, other than skin cancer.
