Which Prostate Cancers Really Need Treatment?
Date:7/9/2013

Vorstman, "The gross overdiagnosis and overtreatment of this non aggressive prostate cancer and the insignificant number of lives saved by the crippling surgical treatment have been underscored by the embarrassing USPSTF report on prostate cancer screening as well as the flurry of class action lawsuits against the robot equipment makers. In response to these concerns there have been some moves by urologists to readdress prostate cancer screening guidelines and to tighten the indications for the use of the highly unreliable PSA blood test (the AUA now suggesting greatest evidence for "benefit" from routine screening was for men ages 55 to 69 only) as well as address the burning issue of prostate cancer overdiagnosis. Regrettably though, concerns regarding the pervasive overtreatment of insignificant Gleason 6 (3+3) prostate cancer with the irreversible, unproven, high-risk robotic prostatectomy are not being addressed."

Dr Vorstman's passion is the empowerment of men and their wives/partners about localized prostate cancer, management options and health choices. He is a dedicated patient advocate and an outspoken critic of overdiagnosis and overtreatment of the favorable-risk Gleason 6 (3+3) prostate cancer. His powerful messages and insights about prostate cancer reach many people through his website and blog, www.urologyweb.com
