The prevalence of prostate cancer in daily life is high, and many men are beginning to pay attention to their prostate health and disease prevention knowledge. Today's editor has also prepared the following content, from which we can know the three most common factors of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is a common prostate disease in daily life, and it causes great physical harm to patients. Many young men have a big misconception about prostate cancer, thinking that they will not develop it when they are young. In fact, this is a manifestation of their own ignorance. Do you know what are the high-risk factors for prostate cancer?
The high-risk factors for prostate cancer are important factors for men to develop prostate cancer. Therefore, what are the high-risk factors for prostate cancer and how should one avoid the factors that trigger prostate cancer?
1、 Age: Age is the main risk factor for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is rare in men under 45 years old, but with the growth of age, the incidence rate of prostate cancer rises sharply, and most patients with prostate cancer are over 65 years old. Basically, the incidence rate of prostate cancer almost doubles every 10 years after the age of 40. The risk of prostate cancer for men aged 50 to 59 is 10%, and the risk of prostate cancer for men aged 80 to 89 sharply increases to 70%.
2、 Family history: When a male family member suffers from prostate cancer, the male incidence rate of the family increases significantly. Direct male relatives generally refer to fathers and brothers. If one of the immediate relatives has prostate cancer, the probability of developing prostate cancer will be twice that of the general population, and if there are two, it will be three times higher. This indicates that the occurrence of prostate cancer may be related to one or more genes in the body, but these genes have not yet been fully determined by scientists.
3、 Race: The incidence rate of prostate cancer is the highest among African Americans (African Americans), followed by Hispanics and white Americans. The incidence rate of prostate cancer among African Americans is the lowest in the world. The incidence of prostate cancer in Asian men living in the United States is lower than that of Caucasians, but significantly higher than that of native Asian men. Although the incidence rate of prostate cancer among yellow people has not yet reached the level of European and American countries, the incidence rate of prostate cancer is increasing year by year in Chinese Mainland, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Singapore.
