Prostate cancer and omega 3 Study

Shows as sensationailized in media that omega 3 causes prostate cancer

lets read the methodology:
Methods Case subjects were 834 men diagnosed with prostate cancer, of which 156 had high-grade cancer. The subcohort consisted of 1393 men selected randomly at baseline and from within strata frequency matched to case subjects on age and race. Proportional hazards models estimated hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for associations between fatty acids and prostate cancer risk overall and by grade. All statistical tests were two-sided.

This means that at the time of study the mem were already diagnosed with cancer! So if you have prostate cancer would you not take more omega 3 because it can delay progression or at least lower inflammation?
