|Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men. American Cancer Society estimated that the lifetime risk of developing prostate cancer is one in 6. Although it is a relatively non-lethal cancer, only 1 in 35 will die from it, it is the second leading cause of cancer death in men, accounting for about 10% of overall cancer deaths. |
