An estimated 217,730 men will be diagnosed with the disease in 2010. It is estimated that 32,050 deaths from this disease will occur this year.
Prostate cancer runs a second to skin malignancy incidence in men and, except for lung cancer, is attributed to more deaths than any other cancer. It is estimated that about 1 out of 6 men will be diagnosed with this disease during his lifetime, and only 1 man in 34 will die of it.
More people die of lung cancer each year than colon, breast and prostrate cancer combined.
There are a number of possible causes of lung cancer and Dr. Mamus and his staff at the Cancer Center of Sarasota-Manatee have the experience and resources to test, identify and treat all types of lung cancer whether it is caused from smoking, asbestos, toxic chemicals, or cancer that began somewhere else in the body and spread to the lungs.
