Researchers have identified dozens of new genetic factors linked with increased risk of prostate cancer, and testing for them can identify men with a risk of the disease that’s almost six times higher than average. With the latest discovery of 23 factors, the number of common genetic variants linked to prostate cancer rises to 100. In uncovering these new factors, scientists from the Institute of Cancer Research, London, and in Cambridge, UK, as well as researchers from the University of Southern California, looked for genetic variants in almost 90,000 men.
