1. Fewer Men Get Diagnosed
Since there has been a change in the rules concerning prostate cancer screening, fewer men get diagnosed than before the year 2012. This means that fewer men have to undergo one of the many prostate cancer treatment options, such as surgery, especially that not everyone who does get diagnosed with prostate cancer will die from it.
As fewer men undergo a prostate cancer test, the number of listed cases has significantly dropped. This does not mean that you should not take the necessary routine checkups from time to time.
