Cancer can struck anytime on anyone, but studies have shown that there are those who are in higher risk for certain cancer like prostate cancer than others. Here are a four major factors you or your loved ones should be aware of according to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. First is age. The average age of diagnosis for prostate cancer is 69 years old in the United States. Next is the race of the person. Statistics have shown African Americans are more likely to develop prostate cancer than other race groups. Conversely, Asian men have the lowest risks if they live in Asian, for those who have moved west to the United States, their risks have increased. Family history is also an indicator for risks in prostate cancer. If a father or brother has previously been diagnosed with the disease, and when such diagnosis were at an younger age, risks become higher for the individual. Lastly, the geographical difference of groups also mean different risk levels. As mentioned above Asian males who have migrated toward west have a higher risk than those who do not. For example, those who live in China has a 2% chance of getting prostate cancer, whereas those living in the United States have a 17% of getting the disease. Understand these risk factors can help with motivation with an open dialogue with the doctor and early screening.
