Smoking and prostate cancer: a life course analysis.

Long-term cigarette smokers may be highly vulnerable to prostate cancer.

​This study analyzed the relationship between a lifetime of smoking and the odds of developing prostate cancer. Researchers evaluated data from a case-control study involving 402 cases of prostate cancer. 

Researchers discovered that lifetime smokers had a higher propensity to come down with prostate cancer than those that never smoked. Data from this study support the hypothesis that lifetime exposure to tobacco smoke may be a contributing factor to the development of prostate cancer.
