The risk was prostate cancer in 2005 the era of 51 new cases per 100,000 men, and between 2018 and 2019 the analysis will be 61,000 new cases, the most prevalent type of cancer among men, even Brazil having the lowest CaP mortality rate among Latin American countries. Objective: To analyze the epidemiological profile of access to health and mortality from prostate cancer among Brazilian regions during the period from 2000 to 2015. Methods: This is a population-based ecological study, produced by the collection of secondary data from Brazilian regions between 2000 and 2015. Data on mortality, hospitalization, and the population will be collected from the Department of Informatics of the Brazilian National Health System (DATASUS), where it will count on the Mortality Information System - SIM, Hospital Information System - SIH and with the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics - IBGE. The study variables will be related to the epidemiological profile of prostate cancer among the Brazilian regions, stratified by the number of hospital admissions; a number of deaths; admission rate; mortality rate and age range (40 to 79 years). A temporal trend analysis will be performed to evaluate the trend of access to health and mortality from prostate cancer using regression models. Finally, the trend with the standardized national rates for each location and age group, with a confidence level of 95%, will be estimated using the Statistical Data Analysis and Statistical Software for Professionals (Stata) version 11.0® program.
