POW-SANG, Mariela et al. Prostate cancer in Latin America. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.10, pp.1057-1061. ISSN 0210-4806.

There is a very low rate of early prostate cancer detection in Latin America, since patients usually are diagnosed when the disease is in advanced stages. Sporadic prostate cancer screening campaigns do exist which allow us to diagnose this disease in earlier stages. Incidence and mortality rates differ widely from country to country, and they are probably underreported in our region since registers may be city-based instead of country-based.

Keywords : Prostate cancer; Latin America; Incidence; Mortality.
