Cancer of the prostate remains at relatively low incidence in Asia but rates are increasing rapidly in some countries and specific populations so that measures for control need our attention. Little is known about risk factors, although vegetables and phytoestrogens may be protective and fat, meat and dairy products may increase the risk. Physical exercise may have preventive effects, while tobacco and alcohol appear to have no consistent relationship. The lack of clear lifestyle targets means that emphasis needs to be placed on screening for various prostate specific antigen parameters and clinical treatment, whether hormonal, radio or surgical, alone or in combination. While there is a massive literature for the Western world, the limited literature available for Asia means that cooperation to obtain a standardized data base is a high priority if the most effective measures for the specific populations of Asian countries are to be identified and put into practice.
