Results and conclusions. Based on the present study, it was concluded that older men have more knowledge about prostate cancer, its causes, methods of examinations, treatment and consequences. This proves that the problem of prostate cancer is often neglected in young mens education, which causes inadequate level of knowledge. The main source of knowledge about the prevention of prostate cancer is mass media, which indicates the need to increase educational efforts to promote knowledge about risk factors and methods of early detection of cancer among men.

Key words: prostate cancer, state of knowledge, prevention, treatment.
