Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer diagnosed among men who live in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates that there were 220,800 new cases of prostate cancer in the US last year, accounting for over 25% of the three major cancers (rated in terms of mortality rates) that afflict males across all age groups.

While highly treatable and with near 98% long-term survivability rates when diagnosed in its earliest stages, prostate cancer resulted in about 28,000 deaths in 2015, making it the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States, trailing only lung cancer.

Working closely with our Medical Advisory Board, we also seek to serve as an information repository for men and their families in leading them to the most effective and least invasive treatment options.
