Prostate cancer increases hip fracture risk by eight times in 50 to 65 year-olds
Date:10/11/2007

res.

The researchers used data from the Danish National Hospital Discharge Register, the National Bureau of Statistics and the National Prescription Database to identify patients aged 50 and over who had suffered a fracture. They then used the same data to identify an age-matched control group.

Our research showed that the increased fracture risk became apparent in the early stages after diagnosis and remained pronounced even in long-term survivors says Steen Walter, Professor of Urology at Odense University Hospital.

Men who received hormone therapy (ADT) or had their testicles surgically removed to slow the progression of the disease were 1.7 times more likely to suffer a fracture.

The authors point out that the research only covered the 15 per cent of ADT doses issued on prescription. The majority of the doses are issued by hospital departments, which means they cannot be traced to individual patients. So the actual impact of ADT on national fracture levels could be even greater.

Other issues were also found to lead to increased fracture rates.

The study showed that the men in the fracture group were almost three times as likely as the control group to have suffered a previous fracture. They were also more likely to live alone and be in a lower income group says Dr Abrahamsen.
