Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men, behind lung cancer. It is caused by changes in the DNA of a normal prostate cell. Every time a cell prepares to divide into 2 new cells, it must copy its DNA. This process is not perfect, and sometimes mistakes happen, leaving the flawed DNA in the new cell. The more prostate cells grow and divide, the more chances there are for mutations to occur.
