Prostate Cancer Resource Center
Chesapeake Urology Associates and its physicians are at the
forefront of detecting and treating prostate cancer. Each year, we
diagnose thousands of prostate problems and provide the most
advanced treatments available, including Robot Assisted Radical
Prostatectomy, an exciting new minimally invasive surgical
treatment for many prostate cancers.
The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system located
just below the bladder and in front of the rectum. It is usually
about the size of a walnut and surrounds the urethra (the tube that
empties urine from the bladder). The prostate gland produces fluid
that makes up part of the semen.
Affecting 200,000 plus men each year, prostate cancer is second
only to skin cancer as the most common male cancer in the U.S. Men
aged 50 and older, African American men and men with a family
history of prostate cancer are at higher risk. Fortunately, most
prostate cancers are slow growing and can be detected at an early
stage, when most can be cured.
