Life changing as it may be, a diagnosis of prostate cancer can very often result in full remission. As almost 90% of the cases where prostate cancer is detected, while it remains localized, the cure rate is quite high. In fact, according to the American Cancer Society, when prostrate cancer is treated in these early, localized stages, nearly 100% of prostate cancer patients can expect to be disease-free after five years.
