According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. The prostate, a walnut-sized gland of the male reproductive system, sits below the bladder and in front of the rectum. It surrounds part of the urethra and helps produce semen and nourish sperm.
The part of the prostate surrounding the urethra may continue to grow, which can lead to prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, a benign condition), enlargement of the prostate or prostate cancer. In its early stages, prostate cancer often displays no symptoms. But as it progresses, you may notice discomfort or other changes in urination.
When you choose Reston Hospital, you know you are in the most capable and qualified hands in the region for cancer prevention and cancer care.
