Within those categories, saw palmetto, vitamin E, and selenium were the most popular.
The two most popular reasons for choosing CAM were to boost the immune system and to prevent recurrence. According to another Canadian study, approximately 30% of survey respondents with prostate cancer reported using CAM treatments.
Prostate cancer is the most common noncutaneous cancer affecting men in the United States.
From 2008 to 2012, the median age of diagnosis of prostate cancer was 66, and the incidence rate was 138 cases per 100,000 men per year. Many studies suggest that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use is common among prostate cancer patients, and the use of vitamins, supplements, and specific foods is frequently reported by these patients.
One study examined vitamin and supplement use in men with a family history of prostate cancer.
At the time of the survey, almost 60% of the men were using vitamins or supplements.
The study identified differences in thinking patterns between CAM users and nonusers and suggested that no specific theme led patients to CAM; instead, patients were directed by a combination of ideas.
Men who attended the screening clinic completed questionnaires about supplement use.A Swedish study published in 2011 found that, overall, participants with prostate cancer were more likely to have used supplements than were healthy population-based control subjects.
