Prostatitis and Prostate Cancer Treatment in Miami, FL

What is Prostatitis or Prostate Cancer?

Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland, a small gland located below the bladder in men, responsible for producing seminal fluid. Prostatitis can be acute or chronic, and it is often painful and disruptive to daily life.

Prostate cancer, on the other hand, is a form of cancer that occurs in the prostate gland. It is one of the most common types of cancer in men. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or no treatment, others are aggressive and can spread quickly.
