Anthropometric variables evaluation in prediction of prostate cancer

Arayombo BE, Ojoawo AO, Akinola OT, Adepoju FA.

Abstract
The study determined the predictive equation of prostate cancer from anthropometric parameters. Subjects were recently diagnosed of prostate cancer receiving treatment at the Surgical Outpatient Department of Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex (OAUTHC), Ile-Ife, Nigeria with their age and sex matched apparently with healthy individuals from the same vicinity participated from the study. The weight, height, waist circumference (WC), hip circumference (HC) and wrist circumference were measured for the 2 groups. Body mass index (BMI), waist to hip ratio (WHR) and frame size (FRS) were calculated. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse the result.
The result revealed that there was a significant increase in WC (t = 2.95, p<0.001), WHR (t = 4.80, p<0.001), FRS (t = -4.53, p<0.001) and BMI (t = 2.21, p<0.05) of subjects with prostate cancer than the control group. The R2 for the anthropometric variables was 0.939
It can be concluded from the study that increase in any of BMI, WHR, WC, hip circumference and frame size might be a predisposing factor for prostate cancer. The predictability of prostate cancer in combination with these variables is greater than or equal to 90%.

Key words: prostate cancer, waist circumference, hip circumference, frames size, waist to hip ratio
