Breast & Prostate Cancer —Similar Cancers
Part 1—Different Organs, but Similar Cancers: Breast and Prostate cancers have many things in common. Both cause about the same number of deaths every year, although men with prostate cancer tend to be older than women with breast cancer. Usually hormone-dependent, these cancers grow faster in the presence of hormones: Breast with estrogen and Prostate with testosterone and androgens. Here in Wisconsin, about 1/3 of all cancers are hormonally related cancers!
