The Risk Factors for Prostate Cancer

Dr.  Gregory Echt explains the various risk factors for prostate cancer.

Irving, Texas – Feb 18, 2019 – Prostate cancer is a risk for all men. But some risks factors for prostate cancer cannot be controlled, while others can be minimized by changing lifestyles. Risk factors influence the chances of getting cancer, but sometimes they don’t end up causing cancer. Some patients with well-known or multiple risk factors do not have cancer, while others who are not at risk do have the disease.

“Having the right information helps to make the best decisions for your prostate health,” explained Dr. Echt. “It is essential to talk about your risks for you to make informed health care and lifestyle choices.”

Different risks manifest in different types of cancers. Some of the risk factors can be changed while others cannot. Some of the factors that affect an individual’s risks of developing prostate cancer include:

•    A person’s age – Men who are younger than 40 years are not at risk for prostate cancer. The chances of having the disease increase after the age of 50 years. Over 80% of prostate cancers occur in men who are 65 years and above. Prostate cancer patients who are diagnosed with the disease at an older age can face challenges in their treatment.

•    Ethnicity – Men of African American descent are at high risk of prostate cancer compared to white men. The same men are also likely to develop the disease at an early age. Those with prostate cancer are known to have aggressive tumors. Though the differences are considered to be genetic or socioeconomic, they are not well known. Non-Hispanic white men have a slightly higher risk of developing prostate cancer compared to Hispanic men.

•    Family history – Familial prostate cancer runs in the family and affects 20% of diagnostic cases. This type of cancer develops from shared genes and other shared factors such as lifestyle and environment.  Hereditary prostate cancer is cancer inherited from relatives and is rare. Changes in mutations or genes can be passed from generation to generation.

Studies are underway to find ways of preventing prostate cancer,” continued Dr. Echt. “Procedures such as chemoprevention, using inhibitors to prevent its growth and hormonal prevention can help in preventing the disease.”
