Patients with Prostate Cancer
1 in 9 men
About 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, and prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in American men. For the 180,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year, the diagnosis can be scary, confusing and uncertain, but there are many resources to help both patients and families deal not just with the diagnosis, but also with living with the disease and treatment. If you’ve been diagnosed with prostate cancer, your physician is the best person to guide your treatment and care.
