Prostate Cancer Affects 1 in Every 9 Men
The earliest signs of prostate cancer are often urinary, including weak stream, frequent urination, burning sensation when urinating, difficulty starting flow, dribbling, and even blood in the urine.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men except for skin cancer and the warning signs of the disease can be confused with other conditions. It is also the second-leading cause of cancer-related death in men, after lung cancer.
The good news is that prostate cancer is also one of the most treatable types of cancer, and the death rates are declining due to early detection and improved treatments.
