President Donald J. Trump recently spoke in recognition of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, saying that although the disease is the second cause of cancer death among men, there is “good reason” to be optimistic about defeating the disease.
“The rate of new prostate cancer cases in the United States has fallen nearly 6% on average each year over the past decade. During this same time, the rate of deaths due to prostate cancer has also fallen by more than 3% on average each year,” Trump said in a statement. “Men diagnosed with prostate cancer are living longer lives than ever thanks to innovative research and improvements in cancer treatment.”
