It will strike more than 230,000 this year - and this is only those men whose prostate cancer has been identified. Overall, men have a 17 percent chance of developing this disease and a mortality rate of about 3 percent. Its important to note that of all the cancers that beset men, prostate cancer is perhaps the most curable when detected early. When the cancer is still confined to the prostate, the five-year survival rate is 100 percent, and the 10-year survival rate is 75 percent. The Cleveland Clinics experts view early detection and reduction of risk as vital. This book outlines what all men, even those as young as 21, must do to reduce their risk of prostate cancer- for those who have been diagnosed with the disease, it outlines successful treatments.
