London: One in eight men will develop prostate cancer at some point during their life, a new study suggests.Government figures show that this is the most common cancer among men in England, with 34,900 new cases diagnosed in 2010, accounting for 26 percent of all new occurrences of cancer in males.This equates to 106 new cases per 100,000, according to the Office for National Statistics.That is down slightly from 2009, when 110 new cases per 100,000 men were recorded, but it is still the second highest rate in more than 40 years.In 2010, 75 percent of the new cases were in men aged 65 and over, with the largest number in the 70 to 74 age bracket.Sir Roger Moore, at the age of 65 in 1993, faced one of his worst fears when he discovered he had the disease. The movie actor, now 85, made a full recovery.Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of male cancer deaths after lung cancer, causing 13 percent of fatalities.
