Complete PHOM Indicator Profile Report of Prostate Cancer Deaths

Definition

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

Numerator

The number of deaths due to prostate cancer for a given year (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: Reduce the prostate cancer death rate

U.S. Target: 21.8 deaths per 100,000 males

Other Objectives

CSTE Chronic Disease Indicators

How Are We Doing?

In 2017, the Utah age-adjusted prostate cancer mortality rate was 19.5 per 100,000 males. There was no significant difference in prostate cancer mortality among ethnic or racial groups in Utah.

How Do We Compare With the U.S.?

The U.S. prostate cancer age-adjusted mortality rate has been decreasing. The Utah age-adjusted prostate cancer mortality rate has varied from year-to-year and have closely mirrored national rate.[[br]][[br]] In 2017, the Utah age-adjusted prostate cancer mortality rate was 19.5 per 100,000 males while the national rate was 18.7 per 100,000 males.

What Is Being Done?

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, breast, and colorectal cancers as well as the promotion of physical activity, healthy eating habits, melanoma cancer prevention, and cancer survivorship advocacy.

Available Services

Currently, Medicare provides coverage for an annual PSA test for all Medicare-eligible men age 50 and older. Many private insurers cover PSA screening as well.
