Fewer Men Estimated to Die From Prostate Cancer

Recently released figures have indicated an estimated 26,120 men will die of prostate cancer in 2016, a 5 percent drop from the 2015 estimate. Based on these facts, a man will lose his prostate cancer battle every 20 minutes. In 2016, an estimated 180,890 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, an 18 percent decline from 2015 estimates

Advances in the treatment of prostate cancer have lead to a steady decline in deaths from the disease, but despite this good news, detection rates have fallen significantly in recent years. This is due to recommendations against PSA testing, causing more patients to be diagnosed in late stage disease and limiting their options for treatment.

We’re concerned that lack of early detection will lead to increases in deaths in the coming years and urge continued focus on advancing diagnostic tools and technology focused on finding prostate cancer early and determining aggressive from indolent disease.
