Report predicts surge in prostate cancer cases

Category: Prostate

Prostate cancer is already the second leading cause of cancer-related death among men, but a new report suggests that even more individuals will soon start receiving positive PSA tests for prostate cancer.

The market research group Reportlinker recently issued a new report that indicates the prevalence of prostate cancer in the U.S., UK, Japan, France, Germany, Italy and Spain will increase by 37 percent by 2019. The report estimates that there were more than 510,000 cases of prostate cancer diagnosed in the countries in 2010.

The report's authors state that the aging populations of these nations will be one of the main driving forces behind the surge in prostate cancer cases. Additionally, they said that more men are seeking PSA testing, which will also play a role in the rising disease rates.

The findings of the report may be troubling for many men in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than 223,000 individuals were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007, the most recent year for which statistics are available. Furthermore, nearly 30,000 of these men died from the disease.
