  • What are the risk factors of prostate cancer?

    There are several factors that may increase a man’s risk of getting prostate cancer.

    • Age: Men over the age of 50 have a great chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer.
    • Race: Research shows that prostate cancer is both more common and more aggressive in men of African descent.
    • Geography: Prostate cancer is more common in North America, northwestern Europe, Australia, and in the Caribbean Islands.
    • Family History: If a family member has been diagnoses with the disease, your risk factor doubles. Some familial genetic mutations such as BRCA1 and BRCA2 can also increase your risk.
    • Lifestyle: Certain lifestyle habits such as high saturated fat diets, smoking and obesity can lead to more aggressive prostate cancer
    • It’s not only important to know your risk factors, but to also have regular prostate cancer screening when one or more are present.
