Abstract

The incidence of prostate cancer (PCA) within Asian population used to be much lower than in the Western population; however, in recent years the incidence and mortality rate of PCA in some Asian countries have grown rapidly. This collaborative report summarized the latest epidemiology information, risk factors, and racial differences in PCA diagnosis, current status and new trends in surgery management and novel agents for castration-resistant prostate cancer. We believe such information would be helpful in clinical decision making for urologists and oncologists, health-care ministries and medical researchers.
