Leading prostate cancer specialist, Dr. David Samadi, shares facts about prostate cancer today and in the future. In the United States, one in six men are affected by prostate cancer. Those numbers translate to 230,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. Sadly, 30,000 of those men will die from prostate cancer each year.
As the U.S. population ages and men live longer, prostate cancer diagnoses are expected to increase significantly. By the year 2030, prostate cancer incidence is expected to increase to almost 400,000 U.S. men.
