Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men, with 220,800 new cases in 2015. It is also the second leading cause of cancer death in men (behind lung cancer). Prostate cancer is usually diagnosed later in life, from ages 50 to 75, which are prime insurance-buying ages. As a result, the insurance industry has paid great attention to developments in the screening and treatment of prostate cancer.
