It has been brought to our attention that there was an error in Table 4 in “Prostate Cancer in South Africa: Pathology Based National Cancer Registry Data 1986–2006 and Mortality Rates 1997–2009.” The number of cases reported for prostate cancer death in the coloured and white population groups were accidently switched in the data supplied. So, of the 2331 reported deaths from CaP in 2009, 970 were black, 530 were from unknown population group, 251 were coloured not white, 546 were white not coloured, and 34 were Asian-Indian. This changes the age standardised mortality rate per 100 000 for white men to 14.5 not 6.8 and for coloured men to 22.1 not 51.9. Also, the average age of death for coloured men was therefore 72 years SD 10.4 and for white men it was 76 years SD 10.1. Coloured SA men still have the highest mortality rate.

Table 4: Prostate cancer in South Africa, comparison of 2009 mortality data by population group when population group was known to 2006 cancer incidence of reported cases to the pathology based National Cancer Registry latest report available.Changes in “Prostate Cancer in South Africa: Pathology Based National Cancer Registry Data 1986–2006 and Mortality Rates 1997–2009” are as follows.

Abstract. The age standardised mortality rate in 2009 between black, white, coloured, and Asian-Indian populations was 11, 7, 22, and 15 per 100 000, respectively.

Second Last Paragraph in Section 3.2. The mean age of men who died from CaP in 2009 was 73 years SD 10.9; for black men it was 72 years SD 11.5, for white men it was 76 years SD 10.1, for coloured men it was 72 years SD 10.4, and for Asian-Indian men it was 74 years SD 10.5. Fourteen percent of malignancy deaths in men were due to CaP 2011, with 78% being older than 65 years 2009.

Last Sentence in Section 3.2. By population group the age standardised mortality rate was 11.4 for black men, 14.5 for white men, 22.1 for coloured men, and 6.2 for Asian-Indian men Table 4.

In Section 3.3. Of the 2331 reported deaths from CaP in 2009, 971 were black, 530 were from unknown population group, 251 were coloured, 546 were white, and 34 were Asian-Indian. White men represent a higher proportion of cases in the NCR 49% but a smaller proportion of deaths from CaP 30% versus 49%, resp.; this was compared to black men who represent 37% of CaP yet 54% of the deaths from CaP Table 4.

Second Last Paragraph in Discussion, 2 Last Sentences. By population group the age standardised mortality rate was 11.4 for black men, 14.5 for white men, 22.1 for coloured men, and 6.2 for Asian-Indian men Table 4. Coloured SA men have the highest mortality rate.
