For African American men, the risk of dying from low-grade prostate cancer is double that of men of other races, a new study has found. But, despite the difference, the risk is still small.
When a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, the disease is given a grade, or score, based on how abnormal (or aggressive) the cancer cells look under a microscope. This system for assessing the aggressiveness of a prostate tumor is called the Gleason score.
Prostate cancer with a Gleason score of 6 is considered low grade, meaning it is less likely to grow and spread than cancer with a higher score (7 to 10). The vast majority of men diagnosed with localized, low-grade prostate cancer will die of something other than prostate cancer.
But, according to the new findings, doctors may be “underestimating the risk” of death from low-grade prostate cancer in African American men, said lead investigator Franklin Huang, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of California, San Francisco.
