About Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer, other than skin cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer death in American men. More than 1 million men in the United States have prostate cancer. An estimated 186,320 new cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2008, and approximately 28,660 men are expected to die this year from the disease(1). Patients with castration-resistant (also known as hormone-refractory) prostate cancer have few treatment options and a poor prognosis.
