In brief: Yes

Yes. As with any type of cancer, diagnosing and treating the cancer early is key.
Depending on the stage and type of the prostate cancer, it is very treatable. If caught at a very early stage, the long-term survival for prostate cancer is very high.

In brief: Yes

Many prostate cancers are treatable when caught early.
In addition, many men do not need treatment for prostate cancer as they will more likely die from some unrelated cause. While 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in the United States, only 1 in 16 will actually die from it. Your doctor will inform you if you are a good candidate for observation of prostate cancer.
