IBD as a risk factor for prostate cancer: what is the link?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Chronic inflammation in the prostate is a suspected risk factor for prostate cancer. Burns and colleagues implicate chronic inflammation in prostate cancer development, albeit from an unexpected source — the gastrointestinal tract. This new study implicates a history of inflammatory bowel disease with an increased risk of a prostate cancer diagnosis.
