In brief: Most organs
Are composed of epithelial tissues made from cells.
Cells can acquire traits of primitive cells, and disobey rules of growth regulation, and remaining where they belong, so they grow and travel. The prostate functions to make seminal fluid, and its cells are adenomatous. The cancers occur as we age, some behave indolently, few are aggressive and can kill.
