In brief: We don't know

Prostate cancer is not a cancer that one just "gets".
Its appears to be a multifactorial diease that is influenced by genetics but may also occur sporadically without any family history. There has been recent data to show that viyamin e may increase chances of getting cancer but there are no other specific links thus far.

In brief: Prostate cancer

No clear risk factors.
....1 in 6 men will get it...Risk doubles if a relative has it.
