What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the age-adjusted incidence rate for prostate cancer in cases per 100,000 males.
Why this is important: 
Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer among men in the United States. It is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer-related death among men. The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system found below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancer forms in tissues of the prostate and usually occurs in older men.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 2,639 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
