Uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the prostate gland can cause prostate cancer. This condition is not always dangerous, but it is common. The reason is that the gland grows very slowly. Prostate cancer occurs in older men, and the average age of diagnosis is 70 years. The condition can be normally diagnosed before it causes any symptoms. Men at this age also suffer from other illnesses that need more attention than the cancer that does not produce visible symptoms. The malignant cancerous cells of the prostate clump together and form small cancerous tumors. In most cases, it takes many years, even a few decades, for the localized cancer to spread beyond the prostate. And many of antiandrogens cancers never spread.
