All of September
Prostate cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in American men and the second-leading cause of cancer deaths. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 233,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in 2014, and almost 30,000 American men will die from the disease. About 1 man in 7 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
Risk factors for developing prostate cancer include increasing age, family history, ethnicity and diet. The average age of diagnosis is 66, but some cases of aggressive forms of the cancer have been diagnosed in men as young as 30. The American Cancer Society recommends men with an average risk for prostate cancer should discuss screening with their doctors around age 50, while men with high risk factors, such as African American men with a family history of the disease, should consider testing as early as age 40.
September is the perfect time to increase public understanding of prostate cancer, including prevalence, approaches to screening and prevention, treatment options, and additional resources available to patients and their families.
