Attached is a link from US National Cancer Institute on prostate cancer mortality. I am posting this so that our members can do a cross reference and get factual data on PCa mortality. This information is using the Surveillance Epidemiological and End Results (SEER) database.

Here is the tables on Prostate Cancer:
seer.cancer.gov/statfacts/html/prost.html

You will see things like local disease and 100.0% survival with local disease at year 5.
You will also see 34% survival at year 5 for advanced metastatic cases.

If you go Fast Facts, you can change the criteria of the search and see that these are estimated among more than 2 million survivors in the us (2.1 mil in year 2006). There are rare cases that won't change that 100.0 percent, and there are those guys alive at year 20 with metastatic disease.

The good news is that most have an excellent prognosis.
