Screening for Prostate Cancer: U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement. Update of the 2008 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation statement on screening for prostate cancer.The USPSTF reviewed new evidence on the benefits and harms of prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-based screening for prostate cancer, as well as the benefits and harms of treatment of localized prostate cancer.The USPSTF recommends against PSA-based screening for prostate cancer (grade (...) D recommendation).This recommendation applies to men in the general U.S. population, regardless of age. This recommendation does not include the use of the PSA test for surveillance after diagnosis or treatment of prostate cancer; the use of the PSA test for this indication is outside the scope of the USPSTF.

for prostate cancer using prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing. STATEMENT OF THE CLINICAL ISSUE Section: Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States, , with the estimated number of deaths exceeding 28,000 in 2012. The rationale for screening asymptomatic men for prostate cancer in the general population is the potential for reducing mortality rates through early detection of the disease. However, much controversy exists between the potential harms (...) that a patient's age and level of comorbidity need to be considered when deciding whether to screen for prostate cancer. – Assessing risk for prostate cancer has been achieved through development of prostate cancer risk calculators. These factor not only PSA but other risk factors and tumor markers for prostate cancer as well. Rather than using a cutoff value, individual probabilities for any and aggressive prostate cancers are calculated, with the decision for biopsy based on patient and physician views

Introduction The goal of prostate cancer (PCa) screening is to reduce the morbidity and mortality from this disease through early detection. There has been a steady decline in PCa mortality following the introduction of PSA testing in the late 1980s. 1 However, phase III trials on PCa screening have demon- strated a high number needed to treat, suggesting many PCas diagnosed were not destined to have an impact on a patient’s overall survival. 2,3 (Level 1 Evidence.)

58. Patient-centered discussions about prostate cancer screening: a real-world approach. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Patient-centered discussions about prostate cancer screening: a real-world approach. National guidelines recommend that primary care providers discuss the risks and benefits of prostate cancer screening with their patients but give little guidance on how to fit such a complex discussion into a busy clinic encounter. The authors propose a process-oriented approach (Ask-Tell-Ask) that promotes tailored conversations and value-based recommendations. The Ask-Tell-Ask approach includes diagnosing (...) a patient's informational needs, providing targeted education based on those needs, and making a shared decision about testing. This time-efficient model emphasizes the provider's role as an interactive guide rather than a one-way supplier of information. Although there is no way to make these discussions simple, this streamlined strategy can help patients and providers efficiently negotiate the complex and important decision of screening for prostate cancer.

Mortality results from the Goteborg randomised population-based prostate-cancer screening trial Prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of death from malignant disease among men in the developed world. One strategy to decrease the risk of death from this disease is screening with prostate-specific antigen (PSA); however, the extent of benefit and harm with such screening is under continuous debate.In December, 1994, 20,000 men born between 1930 and 1944, randomly sampled from (...) the population register, were randomised by computer in a 1:1 ratio to either a screening group invited for PSA testing every 2 years (n=10,000) or to a control group not invited (n=10,000). Men in the screening group were invited up to the upper age limit (median 69, range 67-71 years) and only men with raised PSA concentrations were offered additional tests such as digital rectal examination and prostate biopsies.
