Chronic prostate inflammation linked to cancer

FORBES – April 21, 2014 – Men with chronic inflammation in benign prostate tissue had nearly twice the odds of having aggressive prostate cancer than men whose biopsies had no sign of inflammation, according to a study by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The researchers looked 191 men with prostate cancer  and compared them to 209 men without prostate cancer. Both groups had prostate biopsies performed as part of the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial. The study was published April 18, 2014 online ahead of print publication in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
