Nearly half of prostate cancer deaths can be predicted before age 50

(April 16, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From New York – Nearly 50% of all prostate cancer deaths can be predicted before the age of 50, according to a report published in BMJ. Researchers reviewed data on over 21,000 men aged 27 to 52 who were taking part in a long term study. They found that within 30 years, 44% of prostate cancer deaths happened among those in the top 10% of PSA levels between the ages of 45-49. Individuals in this group were at over 10x increased risk of death when compared to those with the lowest PSA levels.
