What is the outlook for men who have prostate cancer?

Eighty-nine percent of men diagnosed with prostate cancer will live at least 5 years, while 63% will live 10 years or longer.

Because prostate cancer is a slow-growing disease, many affected men will die from other causes. Many patients who have a prostate screening every year detect their prostate cancer while it can be cured.
