Prostate cancer, usually refers to prostate adenocarcinoma, where adeno- means gland and carcinoma refers to uncontrolled growth of cells - so prostate cancer is a tumor or growth that originates in the prostate gland.
Only males are born with a prostate, so this condition only affects males and not females.
And that part of the urethra is called the prostatic urethra.
Beneath this layer, the prostate can be divided into a few zones.
The peripheral zone, which is the outermost posterior section, is the largest of the zone and contain about 70% of the prostate’s glandular tissue.
Moving inward, the next section is the central zone which contains about 25% of the glandular tissue as well as the ejaculatory ducts that join with the prostatic urethra.
Last, is the transitional zone, which contains around 5% of the glandular tissue as well as a portion of the prostatic urethra.
Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. It usually arises in the posterior lobe of the prostate and can spread to other parts of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes. Symptoms include difficulty urinating, blood in the urine, weight loss, and pain in the pelvis during urination. Treatment may involve a combination of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormonal therapy, and surgery.
