What are the survival rates with prostate cancer?
According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 100% of men with low- to intermediate-grade prostate cancer (the most common types) can expect to live at least five years after the initial diagnosis. Since many men who get prostate cancer are already elderly, they are more likely to die from causes other than the cancer.
