Michigan Cancer Dashboard: Prostate Cancer in Michigan

The Michigan Cancer Epidemiology staff has developed this interactive dashboard to profile information about the prostate cancer burden across Michigan, as well as timely detection of prostate cancers and male residents’ discussion of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test with their providers. Data are displayed in charts, tables and/or maps and cover the years 2011 through 2020. The data within this dashboard are divided into three main sections:

  • Prostate cancer burden within Michigan (how much prostate cancer is occurring within Michigan, specifically, prostate cancer incidence rate [the rate of newly diagnosed prostate cancers within Michigan] and prostate cancer mortality rate [the rate of deaths within Michigan due to prostate cancer]);
  • Prostate cancer screening (the percentage of Michigan male residents who are discussing the advantages and disadvantages of having a prostate screening test with their doctor); and
  • Early detection of prostate cancer within Michigan (the stage at which prostate cancers are being diagnosed within Michigan, indicating how advanced prostate cancers are when first diagnosed).

In addition, this dashboard also provides a discussion of the data used for these indicators, as well as general information about prostate cancer and links to additional resources for those who would like to know more about this type of cancer.
