Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to afflict Canadian men. One in every seven men will be diagnosed with the disease during his lifetime. This year alone, nearly 25,000 Canadian men and their families will face a prostate cancer diagnosis. But, there’s hope. When detected early, the survival rate for prostate cancer can be over 90%. Prostate Cancer Canada recommends that men in their 40s get a PSA test in order to establish their baseline.
