Very very unlikely: It is very very unlikely at age 26, but unfortunately anything possible in this world. The youngest I have had , he was 40 years of age.

Unlikely : For a typical prostate cancer that originates from prostate gland - it is unlikely to happen at your age. It is usually more common at older age -60 or older. In certain race like in african american- it can happen at younger age-around age of 40's. However it also will depend on your family history of cancer.
