The most common cancer among men has also made some big strides in recent years. Although a whopping 80 percent of men over 80 have prostate cancer cells, earlier testing and better methods of detection have increased the five-year survival rate dramatically. Of course, the key is to catch the cancer early, which means any symptoms like weak urine stream, the urge to urinate frequently, or blood in the urine, along with numbness in the legs and feet, should be reported right away. You are at a higher risk of prostate cancer if you smoke, drink heavily or eat a high-fat diet.
