The present invention relates to a prostate cancer diagnosis device including a semiconductor laser emitting an laser beam; an endoscope transmitting the laser beam to a biopsy tissue in a human body and receiving auto-fluorescence generated from the biopsy tissue; an optical unit transmitting the laser beam to the endoscope and receiving an auto-fluorescence generated from the biopsy tissue from the endoscope; a detection unit detecting the auto-fluorescence received by the optical unit and measuring intensity of a single photon corresponding to a single pulse to detect intensity of the time-dependent auto-fluorescence (hereinafter referred to as an auto-fluorescence measured value); and a diagnosis unit calculating fractal dimension values of the auto-fluorescence measured value using a fractal dimension algorithm, and a diagnosis method using the same.
