Why is it important?

The distribution of cancer varies significantly from country to country all over the world. The latest estimates of global cancer incidence show that prostate cancer has become the third most common cancer in men, with half a million new cases every year, almost 10% of all cancers in men . The lifetime risk of clinically detected prostate cancer is 9.5%, and the probability of dying from prostate cancer is 3%.


The incidence of prostate cancer varies considerably. Prostate cancer shows significant racial variation. The incidence and mortality rates for American black men are almost twice those for American white men. This increased incidence in black men cannot be ascribed to differences in socioeconomic status. Cancer registries are available in many countries but it is important to note that the degree of accuracy may vary. Possible explanations for low rates of cancer in some countries may be due to underreporting.
