- The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates a 30% increase in new prostate cancer cases for 2021 – the largest increase for any major cancer.
- The ACS also states: “Finding prostate cancer earlier through PSA testing and advances in treatment helped lower the death rate for prostate cancer by about 4% each year from the mid-1990s until about 2013. But more recently (2013-2018), the death rate is no longer dropping.”
