Prostate cancer occurs mainly in older men. Nearly two thirds are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older, and it is rare before age 40. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 67.
One out of every six men will get prostate cancer during his lifetime.
Some possible symptoms of advanced prostate cancer include impotence, blood in the urine, and weakness or numbness in the legs or feet.
The best way to detect prostate cancer in its early stages is with regular digital prostate exams and prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood tests.
