Speaking during occasion, Dr. Abhay said that with changing lifestyles and increasing life expectancy, the rate of prostate cancer is growing rapidly in India. But this trend has not accompanied a corresponding increase in the levels of awareness.”

Close to 70% of all prostate cancers are diagnosed in men over the age of 65, he remarked.

He said further that prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in Indian males, second only to lung cancer.

“While we hear a lot of awareness on cardiac diseases and diabetes, not much is talked about of prostate cancer. Indians tend to ignore or misread the early symptoms of cancer, which delays diagnosis and treatment until the problem has become less amenable to medication, he maintained.
