No: It is very rare for someone under the age of 30 to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is more common with advanced age. It has been estimated that 80% of 80 y/o men have prostate cancer, but these older men usually die from other causes.

Not likely: Average age of diagnosis for prostate cancer remains in the 60s, with extremely rare cases happening in the 30s.
