Prostate cancer occurs more often in African-American men than in white men. African-American men with prostate cancer are more likely to die from the disease than white men with prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men in the United States. In the United States, about one out of five men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, but most men with prostate cancer do not die of it. Prostate cancer is rare in men younger than 50 years of age. A man whose father, brother, or son has had prostate cancer has a higher-than-average risk of prostate cancer.
