Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men (accounting for around 20% of all instances of cancer) (1). 90% of those affected are over the age of 60.

However it is only responsible for 10% of all fatalities from cancer in men which means that many patients with prostate cancer do not die from it. This is also confirmed by autopsy studies, according to which prostatic carcinoma was found in 85% of “healthy” dead males over the age of 85 (2-5).
