The Connection between Prostate Cancer and Asbestos

Dr. Echt explains the research findings of a connection between prostate cancer and asbestos.

Irving, Texas, Mar 17, 2019 – Prostate cancer is not common in men younger than 40 years, most patients diagnosed with the disease are older than 65 years. Although the reasons for its development are not understood clearly, the very presence of prostate cancer affects both the reproductive and urinary systems. People at high risk include those of African American descent and those with a family history of the disease. The five-year survival rate of prostate cancer is approximately 98%.

Some risk factors for prostate cancer can increase the likelihood of a person developing the disease,” explained Dr. Echt. “Some of the risk factors include diet, smoking, family history, and race/ethnicity. Studies have also shown another potential risk factor for prostate cancer – asbestos exposure.”

Many studies have been conducted and shown a potential connection between asbestos exposure and prostate cancer. The possible correlations between the two are significant.

•    Individuals working at an asbestos cement factory were tested for their exposure to asbestos, and many prostate and lung cancer cases were reported. There was a 36% rise in the number of prostate cancers observed compared to the amount expected.

•    In another study, 37 people upon examination, died from pulmonary issues that were asbestos-related. It was determined that people who had asbestos residue in their lungs were most likely to have them in other body organs as well. Doctors examined other parts of the body and discovered that half of them had asbestos fibers. Of the 14 prostate samples analyzed, six had asbestos bodies.

•    A recent study also analyzed participants who worked with asbestos for cancer occurrence. The study took eight years, involved both men and women. The outcomes showed a high incidence of prostate cancer. The participants were also found to be at very high risk of developing lung cancer and mesothelioma.

“The studies show a significant association between prostate cancer and asbestos exposure,” continued Dr. Echt. “The existing findings provide insights into potential causal relationships between the two. We hope that with more research and studies, there will be a definitive conclusion in this connection.”
