Prostate cancer (PC) is the second most common type of cancer and the fifth leading cause of death in men worldwide. It has been proposed that PC in young people is a different entity from late-onset PC. The cut-off point to define early-onset PC has not been established, but the term is used when at the time of diagnosis the patient is under 50 years old. In recent years, it has been observed that the clinical compartment may be similar to patients with late-onset PC, however, in high-risk patients it may be more aggressive. Additionally, it has been observed that the molecular mechanisms of oncogenesis are different between young and old.
