Abstract

[Extract] Dear Editor, Global statistics show that prostate cancer (PrCa) is the second most common non-cutaneous cancer diagnosed in men, and currently, it is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian men [1]. While PrCa is a clinically complex, heterogeneous disease, it is one of the most heritable common cancers, with family history a strong predictor of susceptibility [2]. However, the identification of rare, high-risk germline variants for PrCa has lagged significantly behind other heritable cancers [3].
