There’s no denying that prostate cancer is a serious condition. Each day, 86 men in the US die from prostate cancer(1). This amounts to over 30,000 deaths from the disease. But there are reasons to be optimistic even when given this terrible news.
You are not alone with this condition. It’s an extremely common disease, with over 10% of men (1 in 9) expected to get prostate cancer in their lifetime(2). Prostate cancer typically grows slowly, and the majority of men who suffer from the condition live at least ten years after the diagnosis(3). When diagnosed early (local or regional, meaning the disease has not spread to other organs), the 5-year survival rate is nearly 100%(4).
Now that you have your diagnosis, it’s time to move forward with your treatment. Request an appointment with Urology One to get started today.
According to the American Cancer Society (5), “Prostate cancer begins when cells in the prostate gland start to grow out of control.” These glands are only located in men, and produce a portion of the fluid in semen. Prostate cancer, as the name suggests, begins in the prostate. If the disease is untreated, it can spread to other organs, complicating treatment and reducing the chances of overcoming the condition.
As evidenced by the high survival rate, prostate cancer is treatable, but timing is key.
