Studying the prognostic factors of Prostate Cancer (PC) is one of the pillars of current research in order to know which patients we should or should not treat. Environmental, epidemiologic, clinical, analytical and pathological factors, and the surgical technique, are going to influence the prognosis of our patients. The literature regarding the prognostic factors is extensive and very often contradictory. The majority of the papers published are related to tumour characteristics. Those associated with the patient, have not been widely studied and in general, they are studied as individual factors and have controversial results, despite the fact that the 60 to 80 year-old population has the greatest incidence of PC, an age group that presents in turn a higher number of comorbidities. Hypercholesterolemia, obesity, diabetes and their respective treatments very often coexist in the population with PC. Knowing the implications of these pathologies and their treatments in the progression of the cancer is another factor to study.
