Prostate cancer is the third leading cause of death in Canada for men. In fact, prostate cancer deaths make up 10 percent of all cancer deaths across the country. Roughly one in seven Canadian men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime. Someone you know and love, a brother, father, cousin, may develop prostate cancer in the next few years.
On the bright side – prostate cancer is very treatable, and according to the latest statistics from the Canadian Cancer Society, it has a 95 percent five-year net survival rate. But, if you know anyone who has gone through any cancer treatment protocols, you know it’s a battle.
