Abstract

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed non-skin cancer in the US and the second most common cause of cancer death among American men. In 2008 an estimated 186,320 men will be diagnosed with, and 28,660 will die of, prostate cancer in the US. Incidence rates increased dramatically in the 1990s attributable to prostate cancer screening but then declined after uncovering of prevalent cases. Mortality rates have trended downward in the past 15 years (Fig. 8.1).
