What causes prostate cancer?
Over 90 percent of prostate cancer cases have no known cause. The only thing that many cases have in common is the presence of a certain gene. That gene, called the BRK (or BRCA1) gene, gives men an increased risk of developing breast cancer. In the case of prostate cancer, the genetic defect is present on a very small number of cells that make up the prostate gland. In the event that these cells begin to grow in size, they become cancerous.
