imaging (MRI), bone scan, and computed tomography, are often also performed, especially in men presenting with higher risk disease, to check for disease spread. Screening controversy For many reasons, PSA screening remains controversial. Advocates often base their opinions on the European Randomised study of Screening for Prostate Cancer (ERSPC), which suggests that screening may reduce the long term risk of prostate cancer-specific mortality by at least 9% (relative reduction). They also note (...) that substantial observational evidence indicates a reduction in advanced disease and reduction in prostate cancer mortality, which they attribute to the introduction of PSA screening. Opponents of PSA screening highlight the indolent natural course of prostate cancer, citing systematic reviews that reported little or no impact of PSA screening on overall and prostate cancer-specific mortality. Opponents also suggest that the harms and burden from overdiagnosis and overtreatment resulting in unnecessary

screening 24 April 2020 Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) - 1 - 1 Background Prostate cancer is a malignant change in the prostate; as it progresses, it can infiltrate directly adjacent tissue (seminal vesicle, urinary bladder, large intestine) and can form distant metastases. As measured by the number of new cases, prostate cancer is the most common tumour disease in men in Germany, making up 23.0% of all cancer cases. For 2016, the Robert Koch Institute estimated that about (...) 58 780 men received an initial diagnosis of prostate cancer [1]. Age is considered the most important risk factor for the development of prostate cancer [1, 2]. At a median age of onset of 72 years, prostate cancer occurs predominantly in advanced age; it is rarely found before the 45 th to 50 th year of life [1]. Every year, about 14 000 men in Germany die of the consequences of prostate cancer [1]. The prognosis of the disease decisively depends on the tumour stage as well as tumour typing

has published a white paper to provide some guidance regarding periprocedural prophylaxis. Since prostate biopsies are also an important part of some active surveillance programs, understanding these risks and communicating them to patients is not only integral to informed consent for prostate cancer screening but also for consideration of treatment options. Once diagnosed with prostate cancer, a man is faced with the risk of overtreatment of indolent disease due to the assumption that diagnosis (...) with a malignancy must necessarily result in treatment of this malignancy. Estimates of overdiagnosis vary widely from less than 5% to more than 75% depending upon the population used with lead times of 5 to 15 years. Although prostate cancer specific mortality and the need for related palliative care is decreased by screening, quality of life may be impaired as a result due to lasting impairment in urinary, bowel, and sexual function. There is considerable distress involved in the decision making process

the disease, while preserving continence and, if possible, potency [1] (B0001). Radiation therapy (RT) is another definitive treatment strategy in which a therapeutic dose of radi- ation is delivered to the tumour (either as external beam, brachytherapy, or a combination of both) while minimising the radiation to normal tissue. External beam RT (EBRT) utilises an external source of radiation to treat the prostate gland and a margin of adjacent normal tissue. Brachy- therapy directly implants a radioactive (...) source within the prostate, thus providing the highest dose of radiation. Its aim is to maximise irradiation of the tumour while minimising radiation to normal tissue [11] (B0001). Health problem PCa is the most common non-skin cancer in men in Europe [1]. Localised PCa is often indolent, and has no impact on health, even without treatment [12-14] (A0002). The incidence of PCa is higher in Northern and Western Europe compared with other areas of Europe, whereas incidence rates in Eastern and Southern

However, much controversy exists between the potential harms (...) will ultimately be diagnosed with low-risk disease, which may not have presented itself clinically over their lifetimes. For men with low-risk disease who seek treatment, it is not clear if the risk of dying as a result of prostate cancer, or any other cause, is reduced compared with men who chose active surveillance. , In the Swedish study in which men were randomly assigned to surgery or watchful waiting, cancer-specific survival was higher among men who underwent surgery. However, the study patients did
