According to the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute, there are nearly four million men living with prostate cancer in the U.S. in 2018, which comprises 43 percent of all male cancer survivors in the U.S. (all cancers). This number is expected to increase to almost 4.2 million by 2024. Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer among men after skin cancer and is now the fourth most common tumor diagnosed worldwide. In 2018, it is estimated that nearly 165,000 U.S. men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer – that is one new case every 3.2 minutes. Worldwide, an estimated 1.6 million men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018. In the UK alone, one man will die from prostate cancer every 45 minutes.
