Prostate cancer screening PSA test controversial recommendation
The uproar that began last year when the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force stated that doctors should no longer offer regular prostate-cancer tests to healthy men continued this week when the task force released their final report.

New urine test can detect prostate cancer risk early
A new urine test can help aid early detection of and treatment decisions about prostate cancer. Examining the urine sample for TMPRSS2:ERG and PCA3 and stratified patient into low, intermediate and high score, indicating their risk of cancer can help.

Encouraging men to seek evidence based information of prostate cancer
Encouraging men to seek up-to-date evidenced-based information from their GPs about screening and treatment of prostate cancer disease and screening for prostate cancer is recommended. The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) has welcomed the release of the results of the Health Select Committee's inquiry into the early detection and treatment of prostate cancer.

Prostate biopsy is not always necessary after raised PSA levels
Elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels in men may be caused by a hormone normally occurring in the body, and are not necessarily a predictor of the need for a prostate biopsy, revealed by researchers.

Prostate cancer screening may result in overdiagnosis of cancer
The recent release of two large randomized trials suggests that if there is a benefit of screening, it is, at best, small, says a new report in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians.

3 minute quick test for prostate cancer
A new 3-minute test could help in diagnosing prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men in the UK, according to scientists. Researchers have developed the test by using light energy to measure the level of citrate in fluid samples from the prostate gland.

Genetic marker predicts early onset of prostate cancer
Fox Chase Cancer Center researchers have identified a genetic marker that is associated with an earlier onset of prostate cancer in Caucasian men who have a family history of prostate cancer. If the data are confirmed, the marker may help clinicians personalize prostate cancer screening.

Men should get PSA testing at age 40
The American Urological Association (AUA) issued new clinical guidance ? which directly contrasts recent recommendations issued by other major groups ? about prostate cancer screening, asserting that the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test should be offered to well-informed, men aged 40 years or older who have a life expectancy of at least 10 years.

Income linked to prostate cancer grade
Low-income men are more likely to present with advanced prostate cancers, most likely because they don't receive screening services shown to reduce the diagnosis of later-stage cancers, a UCLA study found.

Men with wives more likely to be screened for prostate cancer
Although the link between early screening and prostate cancer survival is well established, men are less likely to go for early screening unless they have a wife or significant other living with them, according to a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.

Prostate cancer screening for men over 75 not required
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), updating its 2002 report, now recommends against routine prostate cancer screening for men over the age of 75. More evidence is needed to determine if men under 75 could benefit from screening.

Simple urine test detecting prostate cancer accurately
An experimental biomarker test developed by researchers at the University of Michigan more accurately detects prostate cancer than any other screening method currently in use, according to a study published in the February 1 issue of Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.
