Washington: Men who have sleep problems, including difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep, may be at twice the risk for prostate cancer, a new study has warned. "Sleep problems are very common in modern society and can have adverse health consequences," said Lara G Sigurdardottir, at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik."Women with sleep disruption have consistently been reported to be at an increased risk for breast cancer, but less is known about the potential role of sleep problems in prostate cancer," she said. The team investigated the role of sleep in influencing prostate cancer risk. The researchers followed 2,102 men from the prospective Age, Gene/Environment Susceptibility-Reykjavik study, which involved an established, population-based cohort of 2,425 men aged 67 to 96.
