Types of prostate cancer

The prostate is a walnut-sized organ that surrounds the urethra; it produces a fluid that becomes part of semen. More than 99 percent of prostate cancers develop in the gland cells. This type of prostate cancer is called adenocarcinoma.

There are several strategies for treating prostate adenocarcinoma. More than one of these treatment options may be used, depending on your individual case and goals.

More rarely, prostate cancer originates in other tissues of the prostate, which is called a sarcoma.
