After skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. In the U.S., 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer that’s detected early — when it’s still confined to the prostate gland — has a better chance to be successfully treated, so it’s important that men know their risk factors.
