Experts have said losing weight in young people may be “the key” to avoiding injuries.
“Knowing more about the factors that cause prostate cancer is key to preventing it,” said Dr Marisa Da Silva, from Lund University in Malmö. “The only well-established risk factors, such as advanced age and family history of the disease, are non-modifiable, but prevent severe weight gain.” In young men, it is imperative to prevent prostate cancer.”

Simon Graveson, from Prostate Cancer UK, said: “Maintaining a healthy weight can protect against many types of cancer, but it’s important to remember that prostate cancer can affect men of all weights, shapes and sizes. and sizes.”
