good evening men. i have a group question here. i,m 57 years old and i feel that is kind of young to have prostate cancer. so my question for the men is what is the age of some of you?
@john57 I was diagnosed this past December at the age of 52.
49..diagnosed September 2019 and Surgery Jan 2020
75 when diagnosed.
Personally, I am 76. Just finished 8 weeks of radiation 2 days ago. Over the past few months, I’ve met many men in their 50’s being treated.
Here’s what the Cancer Society says about incidence by age:
Risk of prostate cancer
About 1 man in 9 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
Prostate cancer is more likely to develop in older men and in African-American men. About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men who are 65 or older, and it is rare in men under 40. The average age at diagnosis is about 66.
I was 58. Aggressive cancer. 126.5 PSA. On Lupron. Had a prostatectomy, 7 weeks radiation a year later, then 5 more weeks radiation 2 years after that. Currently I’m on Zytiga in addition to the Lupron shots. Right now my PSA is undetectable.
Diagnosed@ 56… almost a year cancer free, Mayo is the palce to be.
I turned 59 in 2020 but diagnosed with cancer in November 2019. I am also considered young to get this disease. My PSA started going up in 2015. It was around 5 at that time but in 2019 October it went up to 9 so my PCP referred me to a Urologist. After the biopsy, scans, etc., it is determine as stage 4. I started hormone therapy ( Lupron shots in January), Chemo in February( just got me 3rd infusion yesterday abc have 3 more to go), and I’ll be be getting radiation therapy after the Chemos.
I was diagnosed at 75
Diagnosed at 73
