Conditions Affecting the Prostate Gland

Natick, MA Prostate Cancer Diagnosis & Treatment

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, after skin cancer. The disease is almost always successfully treated when diagnosed before it spreads, or metastasizes, out of the prostate.

The prostate is a gland about the size of a chestnut, and is found in the male reproductive system.

The prostate gland produces a fluid called semen so that the sperm can travel.

As men grow older the prostate enlarges. While this can be normal, it can be bothersome when urinating if the prostate becomes too large.

All men age 50 and over should have screen tests! If you are at a risk for this type of cancer then Dr. Friedman would like to start screening much earlier.

Those at greatest risk for developing prostate cancer include men over the age of 40 and especially African American men, and men with a family history of the disease.
