About Prostate Cancer

Although rates of death from prostate cancer have declined recently, the disease remains the second-leading cause of cancer death in American men. More than 218,890 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year, and it is expected that 27,050 men will die from the disease. With more annual cases of prostate cancer than that of breast cancer among women, screening is imperative to ensure the health of the men of our nation.

PCEC recommends yearly screening for men 35 and older if they fall into one of the high-risk categories, including African-Americans, who are at a higher risk than Caucasians, or men who have a family history of the disease. All men over 40 should be checked yearly.

About the Prostate Cancer Education Council
