Nearly 180,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer just this year. These diagnoses will lead to roughly 26,000 deaths. So we’ve created a list in the spirit of Prostate Awareness Month to help reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer.
The American Cancer society estimates there will be 233,000 new cases of prostate cancer diagnosed in the US in 2014, more than any other site in men. In addition approximately 29,000 men will die from prostate cancer in the current year. This is fewer deaths than lung cancer, but more than colorectal cancer.
