Men have a 33% higher rate of being diagnosed with prostate cancer than women have of being diagnosed with breast cancer.

African American men have a prostate cancer mortality rate almost 2 1/2 times higher than white males in the USA.

Prostate cancer usually has no symptoms in the early stages.

If prostate cancer is detected in the early stage, a 5-year survival rate approaches 100%.
