Prostate Cancer: Statistics

  • There are 60% more cases of prostate cancer in African-American men than white men. African-American men are also more than twice as likely to die from prostate cancer. The reasons why are not known. But some risk factors may play a part. These include differences in diet, workplace, hormones, and genes.

  • About 233,000 men in the U.S. will get prostate cancer in 2014. It is the most common cancer in men, not including skin cancer. Nearly two-thirds of these men will be age 65 or older.

  • Nearly all men diagnosed with prostate cancer survive at least 5 years. And 99% survive at least 10 years. Ninety-four percent survive at least 15 years. This includes all stages and grades of prostate cancer. It also includes all treatments.

  • Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men in the U.S., after lung cancer. About 29,480 men will die of prostate cancer in 2014.
