Patient education is an important tool in the fight against prostate cancer.

With about one man in six being diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, there’s a great need for patient education. This is why Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) has developed the Prostate Cancer Education Center at brighamandwomens.org  — providing comprehensive information on prostate cancer, including:

Prostate cancer is the second most common and deadly cancer among American men, with nearly 29,000 dying from the disease each year. However, the five-year survival rate for men diagnosed with prostate cancer has increased from 67 percent to 99 percent in only the past 20 years.

Because prostate cancer can be prevented through regular screenings and care, having all the information you and your loved ones need is crucial.
