The decrease has been linked to more cases of early diagnosis through psa testing and to better cancer treatment.

And the side effects of treatment can change your quality of lifeâ€”mainly not being able to have an erection (impotence) and not being able to control urination (incontinence). If you are older with other serious health problems, these side effects may seem worse than early-stage cancer that may not grow much during your lifetime.
