 Prostate Cancer

 1-Introduction 

Prostatic cancer (PCa) is the most frequent cancer in Europe in men over 70 years-old and the most commonly diagnosed non-skin cancer in men in the United States. PCa follows lung cancer in annual fatality rate, with a lifelong risk for diagnosis of 15.9%(1,2). Over 200.000 new cases are diagnosed each year with approximately one in every six U.S. men affected by the disease. Histology studies from autopsy series show that about 33% of men between 40 and 60 years-old have prostate cancer (3). The incidence of PCa increases with age and reaches 75% in men older than 85 years (4).
