AUA Releases Statement Clarifying Prostate Cancer Testing Recommendations
Date:11/2/2009

The American Urological Association (AUA) today released a statement on prostate cancer testing, clarifying the Association's recommendations and support of early detection.

(Vocus) November 2, 2009 -- The American Urological Association (AUA) is aware of recent news reports disparaging prostate cancer testing.

The AUA strongly supports informed consent, including a discussion about the benefits and risks of testing, before screening is undertaken.

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer affecting men in the United States. One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime—more than 192,000 in 2009. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men.

Prior to the emergence of PSA testing, only 68 percent of newly diagnosed men had cancer localized to the prostate and 21 percent had metastatic disease. Today, more than 90 percent of these men have cancer confined to the prostate and only 4 percent have cancer that has spread to other areas of the body. U.S. deaths from prostate cancer have decreased by 40 percent over the past decade – a greater decline than for any other c
