Abstract:

McCleod S. Prostate cancer. Aviat Space Environ Med 2006; 77:984–986.



Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in American men and second only to lung cancer in deaths. The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be about 232,090 new cases of prostate cancer in the United States in 2005, and about 30,350 men will die of this disease (1). Over the past 15 yr, research has expanded our knowledge of this cancer, its risk factors, treatments, and the potential screening tools. Yet, there is no clear consensus of how to deal with every man who comes in for aeromedical certification, how to screen for it, and how to treat it. No man is the same when it comes to prostate cancer. It is the responsibility of the aviation medical examiner to evaluate the unique aspects of every case for aeromedical implications.
