Cancer of the Prostate
Prostatic cancer is one of the important causes of morbidity and mortality in middle-aged and elderly males in developed Western countries. About one in every ten men can be expected to develop clinically evident carcinoma of the prostate during his lifetime. Prostatic carcinoma is also interesting because of the very high incidence of latent disease and because of its hormone dependency.
