Complete Indicator Report of Prostate Cancer Deaths

Definition

The rate of death from cancer of the prostate (ICD-9: 185 and ICD-10: C61) per 100,000 men.

Numerator

The number of deaths due to prostate cancer for a given year (ICD-9: 185 and ICD-10: C61).

Denominator

The male population in Utah or the U.S. for a given year.

Why Is This Important?

Prostate cancer is the second most commonly occurring form of cancer for men, after skin cancer, and is the second leading cause of cancer death for men in Utah and the U.S.

Healthy People Objective C-7:

Reduce the prostate cancer death rate
U.S. Target: 21.2 deaths per 100,000 males
State Target: 21.2 deaths per 100,000 males

Other Objectives

CSTE Chronic Disease Indicators

How Are We Doing?

From 1988 to 1992 Utah saw an increase of deaths due to prostate cancer. Since then prostate cancer mortality rates have declined. Utah reached its 2010 goal of less than 28.2 deaths per 100,000 males and now works toward the Healthy People 2020 goal of 21.2 deaths per 100,000 males. In 2012, the prostate cancer mortality rate was 22.5 per 100,000 males. There was no significant difference in prostate cancer mortality among Utah's ethnic or racial groups.

How Do We Compare With U.S.?

The U.S. prostate cancer age-adjusted mortality rate has been decreasing. Utah's prostate cancer age-adjusted mortality rate has varied from year-to-year and in 2010 (the most recent national data available from SEER) the mortality rate of prostate cancer was significantly lower among U.S. men than Utah men, (21.8 per 100,000 males and 26.2 per 100,000 males, respectively).

What Is Being Done?

The 2000 Utah legislature approved a resolution encouraging private health insurance companies and employers to include insurance coverage for the screening and detection of breast, colorectal, and prostate cancers. The Utah Department of Health (UDOH) is exploring ways to increase the number of men ages 40 or over who make regular visits to a health care provider to receive appropriate preventive services such as prostate-specific antigen screening. The UDOH has developed an electronic source of information about prostate cancer screening issues for providers and the general public. In 2004, 2005, and 2006, the Utah Cancer Control Program was awarded federal funds used to launch a statewide media campaign with the goal of increasing prostate cancer awareness. Funding was also used to co-sponsor Utah's annual urological cancer conference.

In addition, the Utah Department of Health initiated the Utah Cancer Action Network (UCAN), a statewide partnership whose goal is to reduce the burden of cancer. The mission of the UCAN is to lower cancer incidence and mortality in Utah through collaborative efforts directed toward cancer prevention and control. As a result of this planning process, objectives and strategies have been developed by community partners regarding the early detection of cervical, testicular, prostate, skin, breast, and colorectal cancers as well as the promotion of physical activity, healthy eating habits, and smoking cessation.

Other Program Information

UCAN supports "Man to Man," the American Cancer Society's support group for men with prostate cancer and their partners.
