Abstract: Background: Prostate cancer is highly prevalent worldwide and its incidence shows marked disparities between different countries and races. Age, race/ethnicity, and family history are the strongest known risk factors for this neoplasm. The aim of the present report is to describe the clinical and prostatic characteristics in Amazon Indian men, belonging to the Yanomami ethnic group, which is one of the few indigenous groups in which incidence and prevalence rates of prostate cancer are the lowest in the world.
