Prostate cancer is a disease that affects men age 50 years (in the Philippines, it develops in 19.3 out of every 100,000 Filipinos). It involves the prostate gland, which is a small gland about the size of a walnut, positioned just beneath the bladder, and is responsible for producing fluids that nourish and protect sperm.
The disease is mostly detected among senior citizens because the disease develops slowly and may cause few, if any, symptoms.
