Find out if you are at risk for prostate cancer.

  

The causes of prostate cancer are not fully known.  What research has shown is that there are three main risk factors for prostate cancer:
  • Age - Age is the most important known risk factor for prostate cancer.  The risk of developing prostate cancer rises sharply after age 50, and risk doubles every ten years thereafter.
  • Race - Rates for newly diagnosed cases and deaths are higher in African American men than other races.
  • Family history – Men with close family members (father or brother) who have had prostate cancer are more likely to get prostate cancer themselves, especially if their relatives were young when they got the disease.
