Prostate Cancer in the Caribbean

A discussion has unfolded on the Prostate Cancer InfoLink Caribbean Group forum. It has to do with the high mortality rates relative to incidence.

A question has been raised regarding stage at diagnosis, which, if late, can help to explain the ratio. Does anyone know where we can get good stage-at-diagnosis statistics for the Caribbean?
