Abstract:

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer, and second leading cause of cancer death in men in the United States. Incidence and mortality of prostate cancer in most Asian countries are much lower. With dramatic economic development and exposure to westernized life style and increased PSA testing, the incidence of prostate cancer has recently surged rapidly in Asian countries. For the screen and management of prostate cancer, most Asian countries adopt the guideline and recommendations from Western countries, yet there has been limited data to either support or against such a practice. This review discusses epidemiology, screen and management of prostate cancer in Asian men living in their native Asian countries. In particular, it focuses on the difference of genetic, environment and life style factors and screen program between Asian and Western population.
