Abstract

About 1.4 million transgender adults make up 0.55% of the US population, or transgender persons. Feminization in transgender women can involve a variety of medical and surgical procedures. The primary objective is to deprive the phenotypically male body of androgens while also feminizing it with oestrogen therapy. Prostate removal is typically avoided in gender-confirming surgery (GCS) performed on transgender female patients. The actual incidence of prostate cancer among transgender girls is unknown because to the limits of current cohort studies, however it is believed to be lower than that of cis-gender males.
