Prostate cancer. Gross clinical specimen of a prostate gland that was removed due to the presence of a cancerous tumour (smooth swelling at top). The prostate gland is found in males at the base of the bladder. It secretes fluid that forms part of the semen. Prostate cancer is most common in men over the age of 65 years. The growth of the cancer can impede urination. Metastasis (spread) of the cancer to other regions of the body can cause death. As well as surgical removal of the gland (radical prostatectomy), treatment may include hormonal therapy and radiotherapy.
