The authors conducted a study of 1,001 prostate cancer cases and 942 age-matched controls to evaluate the risk of prostate cancer associated with statin use.
The study found:
(a) Those who had used statins for more than ten years had an 11% increased risk of prostate cancer compared to non-users.
(b) In obese men, current use of a statin was associated with a 50% increased risk of prostate cancer compared to non-users.
(c) In obese men, use of a statin for five or more years was associated with a 80% increased risk of prostate cancer compared to non-users.
