THE FACTS

Because prostate cancer
can spread,

IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW
WHAT TO LOOK FOR

If you are currently living with advanced prostate cancer, ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you having trouble doing regular activities?
  • Are you taking more medicine for pain or discomfort?
  • Are you living with aches, discomfort, or pain you can’t explain?

You may think these things are occurring because of your age, a busy day, or a simple change in routine. You also may think that over-the-counter or prescription pain medicine is the only solution to treat these symptoms.

But these aches, pains, and lifestyle changes could be a sign or symptom of your prostate cancer spreading to bone.

Speak Up. Listen to what your body is telling you. And talk to your doctor about which treatment may be right for you.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
ON PROSTATE CANCER

Prostate cancer is the most common
form of cancer in American men

Nearly 3 million men with prostate cancer

Nearly 3 million men are living with prostate cancer in the United States. There were over 230,000 new cases of prostate cancer in 2014 alone. Prostate cancer only occurs in men. It’s more likely to occur in people with a family history of prostate cancer and African American men. African American men are 56% more likely to develop prostate cancer compared with Caucasian men.

97% of cases in men over age fifty

As men get older, their risk of getting prostate cancer rises drastically. Prostate cancer is commonly thought of as an older man’s disease, because around 60% of cases occur in men over the age of 65, and 97% of cases occur in men over the age of 50.

And although rare (around 1 in 10,000), men in their 30s can be diagnosed, too.

ADVANCED PROSTATE
CANCER PROGRESSION

At initial diagnosis, 16% of patients have prostate cancer that has spread to a different part of the body. This means that the cancer is already in the advanced stage. Most of the time, it spreads to the bones first. Prostate cancer spreads to bones in 9 out of 10 men with advanced prostate cancer.
