CANCER TYPES

PROSTATE CANCER

PROSTATE CANCER

The prostate is a gland that sits just below the bladder. It makes part of the fluid for semen. In young men, the prostate is about the size of a walnut. It usually grows larger as you grow older.

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in men in the United States. It is the second leading cancer killer of men in the country. Experts predict that one in seven U.S. men will develop prostate cancer in his lifetime. When we detect prostate cancer early, treatment can result in a cure for up to 90% of patients.

Screening for prostate cancer is the cornerstone of early detection. We recommend annual screening for the following groups:

  • All men over 55-70
  • Men over 40 with a family history of prostate cancer
  • African-American men over 40
