Risk calculators and risk factors for Prostate cancer epidemiology and demographics
The number of new cases of prostate cancer was 109.8 per 100,000 men per year. In 2020, there are expected to be approximately 191,930 new prostate cancer diagnoses and approximately 33,330 prostate cancer deaths. The number of deaths was 19.0 per 100,000 men per year. These rates are age-adjusted and based on 2013-2018 cases and deaths. Approximately 12.1 percent of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2017 data. In 2017, an estimated 3,170,339 men were living with prostate cancer in the United States.
Epidemiology and Demographics
- In 2017, there were an estimated 3,170,339 men living with prostate cancer in the United States.
- Rates of prostate cancer vary widely across the world. Although the rates vary widely between countries, it is least common in South and East Asia, more common in Europe, and most common in the United States.
- In 2020, there are expected to be approximately 191,930 new prostate cancer diagnoses and approximately 33,330 prostate cancer deaths.
- Prostate cancer is second only to non-melanoma skin cancer and lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer and cancer death, respectively, in United States men.
- Worldwide, there are an estimated 1,600,000 new cases of prostate cancer and 366,000 prostate cancer deaths annually, making it the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and the seventh leading cause of male cancer death.
- The incidence of prostate cancer increases with age; the median age at diagnosis is 66 years.
- Shown below is an image depicting the incidence of prostate cancer by age and race in the United States between 1975 and 2015.
- It usually affects individuals of the African American race. Asian, Hispanic and White individuals are less likely to develop prostate cancer.
- Shown below is a table depicting the age-adjusted rate of prostate cancer by race in 2015 in the United States.
|All Races||White||Black||Asian/Pacific Islander||Hispanic|
|Age-adjusted prevalence||19.5 per 100,000||18.2 per 100,000||39.9 per 100,000||8.8 per 100,000||16.2 per 100,000|
