Prostate cancer is a malignant (cancerous) tumor (growth) that consists of cells from the prostate gland. The tumor usually grows slowly and remains confined to the gland for many years.

As the cancer advances, however, it can spread beyond the prostate into the surrounding tissues (local spread).
