Editorial: Is Prostate Cancer on the Rise?

While we know Prostate Cancer affects 239,000 men a year, new data suggests prostate cancer is on the rise. The article, which was published in men’s journal states:

“Prostate cancer among young men has increased sixfold in the past 20 years, according to a new University of Michigan analysis. Even scarier, the disease usually spreads faster and is deadlier in guys younger than 55 compared to men in their 70s and 80s.

“The type of prostate cancer younger men get seems to be more aggressive than the ‘typical’ prostate cancer, which is often slow growing and non-life-threatening,” says Dr. Robert Mordkin, chief of urology and director of robotic surgery at Virginia Hospital Center, who was not involved in this research.

Nobody is really sure why prostate cancer is on the rise. “One hypothesis is that we are screening for prostate cancer better than before,” says Mordkin, meaning that since more young men are getting PSA screenings, more cancers are being detected at earlier stages. “But this new data suggests screenings are not the reason [for the uptick in cancer cases]—although the researchers aren’t sure what is.”
