  • Prostate Cancer is the 2nd most common cancer affecting men in the U.S.

  • Most early prostate cancers grow slowly.

  • When timely diagnosed and properly treated early prostate cancers often do not lead to death.

  • Unfortunately, some practitioners have relied on this information and have taken a relaxed approach in screening or offering screening to their patients — with devastating consequences as evidenced by the recently released Northwestern University study.*

  • The study reports a 72% increase in the diagnosis of advanced prostate cancers in the last ten years.

  • Advanced prostate cancers have spread (metastasized) to other parts of the body and have a poorer prognosis.

* Study: Increasing Incidence of Metastatic Prostate Cancer in the United States (2004–2013).
