Prostate Cancer in Jamaica and the Wider Caribbean: It is Time to Consider Screening

Issue: 
Pages: 
90–3
Synopsis: 
This paper examines the role of screening and argues for increased screening in the population.

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer in the world (1) and the leading cancer affecting men in Jamaica (2). If PCa is identified early in its natural history, it is eminently treatable with great potential for cure. The Caribbean has the highest age standardized PCa-specific mortality rates in the world (1). Why is this so and what can be done to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with PCa in the Caribbean?
