Prostate cancer is a disease that usually progresses quite slowly and is completely curable when detected at an early stage. It is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men. In the majority of cases, in the absence of spread elsewhere in the body (metastases), the survival rate is excellent. Hence the importance of screening for middle-aged men. In Quebec, twelve (12) men are diagnosed daily. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your doctor or one of our healthcare professionals. Contact our toll-free line 7/7 at 1 855 899-2873.
