Why is this important?

Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer among men in the United States. It is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer-related death among men. The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system found below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancer forms in tissues of the prostate and usually occurs in older men.
