The risk factors for prostate cancer meet

Jul 6th 2014 at 9:07 PM

The prostate cancer is a disease that has been much studied. In Oncology, a major concern of researchers involves trying to determine the cause (etiology) of any type of cancer. In the case of prostate cancer, the studies seek to determine which or what factors may be the cause or that may favor its development.
This area of research is very important because if researchers manage to determine the factor or factors that are causing this cancer ,

it may allow the adoption of measures to prevent these same factors and, consequently, the appearance of this  disease.

The study of patients with prostate cancer and their family trees was determined that there is a strong influence of heredity.

About 9% of cases of prostate cancer are truly hereditary, which implies the existence in the same family of three or more affected relatives, or at least two relatives who have developed the disease before 55 years of age.

From a clinical standpoint, the only difference between the cases of prostate cancer hereditary and nonhereditary is that the first 6 arise on average before the spontaneous cases.

All aspects relating to the progression and response to treatment are the same as spontaneous cases.
