This isn't specific to men and Prostate cancer. I hope I don't burst anyones bubbles here, but given the nature of what cancer is, which is a very bad form of genetic mutation in certain cells, cancer is a probabilities game. You can do things do make that probability higher ( i.e. smoke cigarettes profusely), or you can do things to lower the probability ( i.e. drink tea, live a healthy lifestyle, etc.). But as far as science stands now, and likely as far as science will ever stand the probability for cancer to develop will never be 0. Therefore with the law of large numbers the longer you live, the greater chance you have of developing cancer in your life time no matter who you are.
Simply put: "You live long enough, you will get cancer."
