Abstract

This review on prostate cancer is an attempt to update the reader on the current information we have on the disease. There are no definite cures yet for prostate cancer and the exact mechanism of development is far from clear. However, over the years, the information obtained on the disease has increased due to the unceasing flow of research data. In the following pages, you will be briefed on the basic characteristics of prostate cancer, the characterization of the genomic regions affected, the candidate genes involved, the secondary sites of metastases such as bone and the models that have been developed to investigate the disease in detail.
