Cancer types

Prostate cancer

The prostate is a small gland about the size of a walnut, which is only found in men. It is located close to the rectum (back passage) and is wrapped around the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder along the penis. The prostate produces a liquid that mixes with sperm to produce semen.
