Abstract

The authors retrospectively evaluated the relation between birth weight and prostate cancer (1986-1994) among 21,140 men of the Health Professionals Follow-up Study who reported in 1994 their weight at birth. No relation between birth weight and prostate cancer (n = 545) was observed in multivariate logistic models. For high stage/grade tumors (n = 213), compared with birth weights
