Prostate Cancer

About Prostate Cancer

Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. Estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2015 are*:

  • About 220,800 new cases
  • About 27,540 deaths
  • About 1 man in 7 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime
  • About 6 in 10 cases are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older
  • About 1 in 38 men will die of prostate cancer

However, more than 2.9 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer are still alive today. THAT statistic is why we are here at Cruisin’ for a Cure.
For statistics related to survival, see the section on the American Cancer Society website on Survival rates for prostate cancer.*
