The factors that are most relevant to the development of prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is an age-dependent disease. Which means that the probability of being infected is increasing as age progresses. The risk of prostate cancer by the age of 75 is 1 out of 7 men. This risk is increased by the age of eighty-five to 1 out of every 5 men.
If you have a first degree relative with prostate cancer, the probability of your injury is larger than the men who have no such family history. This risk is also increased if you have more than one male relative with prostate cancer. The risks are also increased for men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at an early age.
Other factors that may increase the risk of prostate cancer
Genes exist in every cell of the body. They control the way cells grow in the body and behave.Everyone has a group of thousands of cells inherited from both parents. Changes in genes may increase the risk of the transmission of prostate cancer from the parent to the child. Although it cannot inherit prostate cancer. However, genes that increase the risk of infection can be inherited.
There is some evidence to suggest that eating a lot of processed meats or foods rich in fat may increase the risk of prostate cancer.
There is evidence that the environment and lifestyle can affect the risk of prostate cancer. For example: Asia has the lowest rate of prostate cancer. But when man migrates from an Asian country to Western country risk of prostate cancer. This indicates that external factors such as the environment and lifestyle can change the rate of prostate cancer risk in men.
