Background: This study provides descriptive epidemiological data of invasive prostate cancer cases diagnosed from 1999 to 2014 in the United States of America.
Methods: This is a retrospective descriptive epidemiological analysis of invasive prostate cancer cases recorded in the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention from 1999 to 2014.
Results: The state of Detroit, New Jersey, Utah, Seattle, Atlanta and Delaware had the highest overall age-adjusted incidence rate of invasive prostate cancer in the United States of America, from 1999 to 2014.The state of Alaska had the highest overall age-adjusted incidence rate (290.5 per 100,000 persons) of invasive prostate cancer among black men only. The state of Arizona had the lowest overall age-adjusted incidence rate (111.9 per 100,000 persons) of invasive prostate cancer among men across all races (white, black, and Hispanic).
Conclusion: This study revealed that the best geographic areas in the United States of America to study the most important risk factors of invasive prostate cancer among men across all races are the state of Detroit, New Jersey, Utah, Seattle, Atlanta and Delaware. The state of Alaska was the highest area affected by invasive prostate cancer among black men in the United States of America, from 1999 to 2014.The most important protective factors against prostate cancer can be found in the state of Arizona.
