Expatriate health insurance customers might want to discuss the risk factors involved in prostate cancer with their doctors.
According to a recent research project, taking a common painkiller could help lower the chances of developing the disease.
Published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention, the study found that using acetaminophen for five years or more could lower the risk of prostate cancer.
Looking at data for almost 80,000 men, the team estimated a 38 per cent reduced risk for men who took 30 or more acetaminophen tablets for at least five years.
Dr Eric Jacobs, who led the study, commented: "While the results of this observational study suggest that long-term regular acetaminophen use may be associated with lower prostate cancer risk, our findings require replication by other studies, and do not justify use of acetaminophen to prevent prostate cancer.
"Acetaminophen is considered relatively safe when used at recommended doses but unintentional acetaminophen overdose is an important cause of acute liver failure."
