Can prostate cancer be cured?

Increasingly effective care

Progress in the detection and treatment of prostate cancer has led to a sharp drop in prostate cancer mortality. With 33,330 deaths predicted for 2020 in the United States, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men, after lung cancer. Prostate cancer, once treated, will remain under surveillance to prevent a recurrence.

Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with prostate cancer do not die from it. In fact, more than 3.1 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point are still alive today.[1]
