To test the hypothesis that bone mineral density (BMD), a possible surrogate of lifetime exposure to hormone/growth factor/vitamin D/calcium exposure, is higher in prostate cancer cases than controls. Hip BMD was measured by dual X-ray absorptiometry in 222 Afro-Caribbean screening-detected prostate cancer cases and 1,503 screened non-cases, aged 45–79, in the population-based Tobago Prostate Survey. Because possible skeletal metastases may modulate BMD, men with prostate specific antigen >20… CONTINUE READING
