Abstract

Prostate cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed noncutaneous malignancy among Canadian men and is the third leading cause of cancer-related death. In 2016, an estimated 21 600 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and 4000 men died from the disease; however, prostate cancer is a heterogeneous disease with a clinical course ranging from indolent to life-threatening.
