Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer). About one man in nine will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer. About 1 in 41 men will die from prostate cancer. Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with prostate cancer do not die from it. More than 2.9 million men in the United States diagnosed with prostate cancer are still alive today.
