ABOUT PROSTATE CANCER
Prostate cancer forms in tissues of the prostate (a gland in the male reproductive system found below the bladder and in front of the rectum).
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer), but it can often be treated successfully.
In 2014 there will be 233,000 new cases diagnosed, and 29,480 will die from the disease.
More than 2 million men in the US count themselves as prostate cancer survivors.
