Chemoprevention is presumably one of most effective means to combat prostate cancer (PCa). Patients usually require more than a decade to develop a clinically significant Pca, therefore, an ideal target for chemoprevention. This review will focus on recent findings of a group of naturally occurring chemicals, carotenoids, for potential use in reducing PCa risk.
