Prostate cancer develops in the prostate gland, and is the most common type of cancer in men, with around 40,000 men in the UK diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. This cancer occurs when the genetic material of cells in the prostate become damaged or changed, producing mutations that affect normal cell growth and division. The abnormal cells then replicate, causing cancer. If undetected, the cancer can spread beyond the prostate and move to other parts of the body. Prostate cancer is especially common in men over 50 years of age, and tends to be one of the slower-moving cancers.
