MORTALITY IN EUROPE

Each year, prostate cancer accounts for around 25% of all male cancers and 10% of male cancer deaths, with over 107,000 people estimated to have died from the disease in 2018.1,2

Studies have indicated that people with a Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) background have a 30% higher mortality rate than their Caucasian counterparts.3

Nordic and Baltic countries tend to have higher mortality rates compared to southern Europe.4 While the estimated prostate cancer mortality in Italy is 22.9 per 100,000 inhabitants, this rises to 55 per 100,000 in Estonia, more than twice that of Italy.4
