Are Prostate Cancer Deaths On The Rise?

No, prostate cancer deaths continue to decline among all men, according to the American Cancer Society.  Treatment for both localized, and advanced, prostate cancer has continued to improve.

Treatments

In fact, in the past 10 years, at least six new treatments have become available and commonly used for patients with advanced prostate cancer, and more are on the horizon.  These treatments can significantly extend length and quality of life for patients with advanced prostate cancer.

  • Provenge
  • Xofigo
  • and others

Of course we continue to offer state of the art surgical treatment for localized prostate cancer as well.

Are Prostate Cancer Deaths On The Rise?

The best way to prevent deaths from prostate cancer, however, is early detection of prostate cancer through PSA screening and physical examination.  The largest randomized prostate cancer screening trial in the world recently provided proof that PSA screening saves lives from prostate cancer.

Recommendation

With this in mind, we recommend that men consider prostate cancer screening beginning in their 40s if they have a family history of prostate cancer, or in their 50s if they do not.
