Watch Massive Bio and our expert nurses, doctors, and patient advocates for the third episode of our new webinar series: Oncology Nurse Hour. For this live series, we take questions directly from the community and discuss all you could want to know about different cancer types, ending each session with a live Q&A.
In this episode, we discussed prostate cancer with expert oncology nurse Kristin Johnston.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men (with skin cancer being the first), but it can often be treated successfully. Prostate cancer starts when cells in the prostate (a gland found only in males) begin to grow out of control. The prostate sits below the bladder and makes some of the fluid that is part of semen. Almost all prostate cancers are adenocarcinomas that develop from the gland cells that make the prostate fluid which is added to the semen. Other types of prostate cancer include small cell carcinomas, neuroendocrine tumors, transitional cell carcinomas, and sarcomas. Most prostate cancers grow very slowly and can be found and treated early.
