According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer among men in the United States and it is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer-related death among men. The two greatest risk factors for prostate cancer are age and race/ethnicity, with men over the age of 65 and men of African descent possessing the highest incidence rates of prostate cancer in the U.S.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the prostate cancer death rate to 21.8 deaths per 100,000 males.
