The prostate is an important organ found under the bladder of men, and it is important for the reproduction process. The prostate produces semen-related fluid in men. When the size of the prostate starts to grow, the condition is called prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is a fatal disease that can affect a person's vital organs. In general, prostate cancer grows very slowly, so its symptoms are rarely detected in the beginning. Unhealthy eating and poor lifestyle have been the major cause of prostate cancer. Although it is possible to prevent prostate cancer by making lifestyle changes (as when it spreads, it makes a person's life difficult). 

There are many reasons for prostate cancer outbreaks. However, the cause of this cancer in an early stage is genetic DNA (the leading cause of prostate cancer). The prostate gland is near the urinary bladder, the substance coming out of this gland helps in sexual activity. Usually, prostate cancer is more likely to occur with aging, but due to today's routine, it can happen at any age. Weakness and pain in both legs are felt. Prostate cancer is more likely to occur due to:

  • increasing age
  • obesity
  • smoking
  • lazy routines
