Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men in many regions of the world, with 899 000 new cases and 258 000 new deaths recorded in 2008. The burden from the disease is anticipated to increase to 1.7 million new cases and 499 000 deaths by 2030 were the respective incidence and mortality rates of prostate cancer to remain unchanged in the future.
This collaborative study led by Ahmedin Jemal of the American Cancer Society and Freddie Bray of the International Agency for Research on Cancer observed that prostate cancer incidence rates increased in 32 of the 40 countries examined during the most recent decade, while prostate cancer mortality rates declined during the same period in 27 of the 53 countries included in the analysis.
