Prostate cancer is cancer that starts in the prostate gland. The prostate is a small, walnut-sized structure (gland) that makes up part of a man’s reproductive system. This gland is the part that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. It wraps around the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the body.

Some symptoms of Prostate Cancer include but are not limited to:

A need to urinate frequently, especially at night.
Difficulty starting urination or holding back urine.
Weak or interrupted flow of urine.
Painful or burning urination.
Difficulty in having an erection.
Painful ejaculation.
Blood in urine or semen.

If you feel as though you may have such issues, please see your nearest functional doctor.
