It is the most common cancer in US men and is the second leading cause of death from cancer in US men (29,000 deaths annually). Risk factors for prostate cancer include older age, race (African American), family history (first-degree relative), and possibly dietary fat. The lifetime probability of prostate cancer developing in a man is 1 in 6.
