Your prostate, your cancer, your treatment and you

The prostate gland

The prostate gland is a small walnut-sized gland. It is found only in men and is located under the bladder. Its main role is in producing the fluid found in semen (which contains sperm).

Testosterone

The body regulates the normal functioning of the prostate using male hormones – also called androgens – which travel around your body in the blood. The main hormone is one you may have heard of: testosterone.

Testosterone is mainly produced by the testicles, but also by the adrenal gland (found above the kidneys).

Prostate Cancer

This is a cancer that occurs in the prostate gland. It mainly affects men aged over 50, and currently over 330,000 men in the UK are living with the disease.

Prostate cancer occurs when prostate cells begin to malfunction – they respond to normal levels of testosterone by growing faster and in an uncontrolled way. This can lead to a tumour.
