The prostate is a walnut-shaped gland located between the penis and bladder. The gland naturally grows bigger with age, however 1 in 8 men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime. You are more at risk if you are over 50 years old, or have a family history of this cancer. Prostate cancer is difficult to detect as not all men experience symptoms, although some do have urinary problems.
If prostate cancer spreads it can cause other symptoms such as; back, hip or pelvic pain, erectile problems, blood in your urine or semen, or unexplained weight loss.
