Men With Inflammatory Bowel Disease May be at Higher Risk of Prostate Cancer

Approximately 1 million men in the United States have inflammatory bowel disease. A recent study suggests that men with inflammatory bowel disease may be at a four to five times higher risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer.


Participants in the study included 1,033 men with inflammatory bowel disease and a control group of 9,306 men without the disease. The researchers followed the men for 19 years.


At the 10-year mark, the researchers found that 4.4% of the men with inflammatory bowel disease had prostate cancer, compared with 0.65% of the men in the control group. Additionally, after approximately age 60, prostate-specific antigen values were higher among patients with inflammatory bowel disease.


Researchers from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine led the study. It was published online ahead of print on December 4, 2018, in European Urology.
