Prostate Cancer

. . No comments:

More than 1.1 million cases of prostate cancer were recorded in 2012, accounting for around 8 per cent of all new cancer cases and 15 per cent in men.

Age-adjusted incidence rates of prostate cancer have increased dramatically and this is largely because of the increased availability of screening for prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in men without symptoms of the disease. This test leads to detection of many prostate cancers that are small and/or would otherwise remain unrecognised, and which may or may not develop further into higher stage disease.

The Second Expert Report Panel judged that diets high in calcium probably increase the risk of prostate cancer and consuming foods containing lycopene or selenium probably protect against this cancer.

✤  Martinique had the highest rate of prostate cancer, followed by Norway and France.
✤ About 68 per cent of prostate cancer cases occurred in more developed countries.
✤ The highest incidence of prostate cancer was in Oceania and Northern America; and the lowest incidence in Asia and Africa.
