Slide 1
What is
Prostate Cancer?

The prostate is a gland found in males that is located below the bladder
and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancer occurs when the cells in the
prostate gland begin to grow out of control, similar to any other kind of cancer.

Slide 2 - types

There are a few different types of prostate cancer, including adenocarcinomas, small cell carcinomas, neuroendocrine tumors, transitional cell carcinomas, and sarcomas.

The different types vary in how quickly they spread.

The most common type of prostate cancer is adenocarcinoma, also known as glandular prostate cancer.

Avoid consuming an excess amount of processed foods or packaged junk foods.

Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fibrous foods, lean meats and fish.

Slide 3 - risk factors

Around 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

The average age of men at diagnosis is about 66.

Risk factors include age (after age 50 chances rapidly increase), family history, diets high in dairy and processed foods, obesity, and smoking.

Heart disease is one of the most prevalent health issues among older men, and regular exercise is one way to help prevent it.


Following the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, adult males should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-level aerobic exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise each week.
