Information

The second leading cause of cancer death in American men is Prostate cancer. (lung cancer is first.) In 2002, doctors told an estimated 189,000 men that they have the potentially fatal disease. In an effort to lower these numbers in the future, researchers are investigating many possible markers for Prostate cancer. These markers may one day help identify men at higher risk.
