Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men in the United States and the most common cancer in men over 50 — about one out of seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Every year, City of Hope hosts a NoShaver fundraising and awareness campaign in November. NoShaver is a month-long journey in which participants forgo shaving in order to evoke conversation, encourage testing for early detection and raise critical funds to continue leading-edge prostate cancer research and promising new therapies conducted at City of Hope.
  • With an estimated 3,120,176 men living with prostate cancer in the U.S., prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in American men.
  • Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. If detected early, prostate cancer may be curable.
  • The average age of those diagnosed with prostate cancer is 66. The disease occurs mainly in men 65 or older, and it is rare before age 40.
