Did you know? Each year, more than 220,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed in the US, with 27,000 deaths. Every 2 minutes a new case is diagnosed and every 18 minutes a person dies from prostate cancer. Caught early, the survival rate for prostate cancer is nearly 100%. However, because symptoms are often nonexistent, many men never find out they have the disease until it's too late.
