Why we got involvedProstate cancer statistics: The fear of having prostate cancer can be devastating to men. However, it is most successfully treated when found early. Consider these statistics from the American Cancer Society: Ninety-one percent of all prostate cancers are discovered while they are either localized (confined to the prostate) or regional (nearby). The five-year survival rate for men diagnosed with prostate tumors discovered at these stages is 99 percent. In the past 20 years, the five-year survival rate for all stages combined has increased from 67 percent to 99 percent. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, excluding skin cancer. American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates for 2008 include 186,320 new cases of prostate cancer in the US. Year 2008 estimates include 28,660 deaths occurring from prostate cancer in the US alone, making it the second leading cause of cancer death in men.
