Can you get prostate cancer while in your teens?

No, teenagers do NOT get prostate cancer. It never happens.

Prostate cancer is extremely rare in men under 50, and so rare in young men that there are no statistics available for the disease incidence in men under 35.

Over 80% of men diagnosed with it are over 65 and half of all cases occur in men over 75.

So whatever your symptoms are, you can rule out prostate cancer

No, prostate cancer is generally something older men get. 40 onwards at least. I think the person who said it is for 15-35 year olds is getting confused with testicular cancer.

There are other things that can be causing your symptoms, please go to the doctor and let them sort it out for you.

prostate cancer is most common in men between the ages of 15 and 35, so do get checked. it's painless and quick, so don't worry about it, and you only need it once a year.

You can get any sort of cancer at any age, it's good to have regular checkups at hospitals or doctor clinics.
