Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers, second only to non-melanoma skin cancer. And it is the No. 2 cancer killer of men.

This cancer grows in the prostate gland, which is located between the rectum and the bladder and helps produce semen. Men who are older, African American or have a family history of prostate cancer are at greater risk of developing the disease.
If you notice the symptoms, be sure to talk to your doctor immediately. These include trouble urinating; erectile dysfunction; pain in the lower back, hips or thighs; and blood in the urine or semen.
Even without symptoms, men ages 40-75 should talk with their doctor about getting screened. Experts debate the benefit of a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, but your doctor can work with you to determine what’s right for you based on your individual risk factors and lifestyle.
