Has prostate cancer impacted your life? Select one.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 1.1 million men were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012, and about 307,000 men died that year.
Only men can get prostate cancer. It’s more likely to occur in men with a family history of prostate cancer and those who live in more developed countries where about 70% of cases occur.
At initial diagnosis, 16% of prostate cancer has spread to a different part of the body. This means the cancer is in the advanced stage. Most of the time, it spreads to the bones first. Prostate cancer spreads to bones in 9 out of 10 men with advanced prostate cancer.
