Smoking as a risk factor for prostate cancer: a meta-analysis of 24 prospective cohort studies.

​Current and former smokers may be more prone to develop and die from prostate cancer than never smokers.

This study explored the relationship between smoking and prostate cancer development and mortality risk using a meta-analytic approach. Researchers from the United States reviewed data and evidence from 24 studies that examined 21,579 cases of prostate cancer.

Researchers found out that current and former smokers were more likely to develop and die from prostate cancer than never smokers. According to this study, the risk of dying from prostate cancer was between 24 to 30 per cent for heavy smokers. The findings of this study indicate that prostate cancer incidence and mortality is positively associated with cigarette smoking.
