Keeping physically active before and after a prostate cancer diagnosis has been shown to reduce the risk of death by 40-50%.
While we don’t know the causes of prostate cancer, there are two risk factors linked with its development: age and family history. The risk of developing prostate cancer increases with age. You have a higher chance of developing prostate cancer if you have a family member, or more than one close relative diagnosed with it.
