Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to obtain information on the level of knowledge, beliefs, and screening practices of men with a family history of prostate cancer. Names of prostate cancer cases are obtained from the Los Angeles County Registry, and cases are contacted and asked to provide information on their first-degree relatives. Data gathering is being done via telephone surveys. The second year of the study has mainly focused on conducting the surveys with relatives identified by the cancer cases. To date, we have contacted at total of 3695 cases and have recruited 986 cases who have provided information on at least one male relative. We have completed surveys with 831 relatives. We received a no-cost extension through 22802. During this final year, we will complete the validation of self-reported screening Task 4 and final data analysis and report writing Task 6.
