Prostate cancer affects one in nine U.S. men. It is the second-most common cancer among men in the United States, behind skin cancer. The美国癌症协会(ACS)estimates that about 268,490 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in 2022. While most prostate cancers are slow-growing, some are more aggressive. Approximately one in every 41 men diagnosed will die from the disease, according to the ACS. Black men are reportedly more prone to developing fast-growing prostate cancers that start causing problems earlier and are harder to treat. While a cancer diagnosis can be scary, prostate cancer has highsurvivor rates, especially when it’s caught and treated early.

What causes prostate cancer?

Who gets prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer is rarely diagnosed in men younger than 40. Still, by age 50, it’s common for men to experience变化in the size and shape of the cells in the prostate. Understanding whether these changes are signs of a tumor and knowing your risk for developing prostate cancer are important steps in protecting your health.

Besides age, other risk factors for prostate cancer include:

  • 种族:黑人比其他种族的男性更有可能发展前列腺癌,并且更有可能死于这种疾病。
  • 家族史:患有直系亲属的人,例如父亲,兄弟或儿子,患有或目前患有前列腺癌的人,患上前列腺癌的风险更高。
  • 遗传遗传变化:几种遗传突变与前列腺癌的较高风险有关。BRCA1或BRCA2基因中的突变就是一个例子。((BRCA突变以其链接而闻名breast cancerand卵巢癌in women.) An inherited condition calledLynch syndromeis also associated with a higher risk of prostate cancer, among other types of cancer.

Prostate Cancer

"My experience was really positive because I sensed that everyone I interacted with truly cared about me. From the doctors, clinicians and nurses to the cafeteria workers, valet and custodial employees, I was treated with warmth and dignity. At CTCA, they knew I was as a patient, but they treated me like a family member. They wanted to see me get better; they wanted me to heal. "
