    What is the survival rate for prostate cancer?

    Most prostate cancer patients can live a long time after diagnosis. In this video, William Oh, MD, an oncologist at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, explains that some kinds of prostate cancer, however, are aggressive and have a higher mortality rate.

    Like most cancers, the ability to survive depends on the patient’s stage and the grade of the disease. The stage refers to “how much” cancer one has. The grade tells you “how aggressive” the cancer is.
