Press release:

New Research Shows Prostate Cancer Testing Prevents 17,000 Men from Developing Advanced Prostate Cancer

A newly released study, published online, and soon to be published in a print edition of Cancer, compared the incidence of advanced prostate cancer at initial diagnosis in 2008 to that seen before the advent of PSA testing (1983-85).

The number of new cases of prostate cancer is similar to the number of new cases of breast cancer. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death in men – heart disease is number one for men. This course explores the use of the PSA Test in diagnosing prostate cancer; the factors that affect the PSA result; and the side effects caused by treating prostate cancer. A discussion on current recommendations for screening is also included.
