Prostate Cancer: Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment
The prostate is the largest accessory gland of the male reproductive tract. Together with seminal vesicles and bulbourethral glands, the prostate is responsible for the production of an alkaline fluid that forms part of the seminal fluid. Prostates of men over 40 years of age are commonly affected by several pathologies, such as benign prostate hyperplasia and cancer. Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among the male population worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in the year 2020, prostate cancer affected approximately 1.41 million men worldwide. Despite significant treatment improvements having been achieved with the advent of targeted and immune-checkpoint-inhibitor-based therapies, cancer remains one of the primary causes of death worldwide. Therefore, this Topic will consider articles on all types of research on the prostate cancer, including in vitro and in vivo approaches. Submission of research on the impact of the tumor macroenvironment (microbiota, diet, physical exercise) on tumor biology, as well as review studies, will also be welcome.
