PSA Test Reduces Prostate Cancer Deaths by 40%
Date:3/11/2010

g experts on prostate cancer, Dr. William J. Catalona of Northwestern University, commented, "Although the PSA test is not perfect, it is effective in identifying men at high risk for prostate cancer and for detecting it early."

The PSA test, the most prevalent method in use today for prostate cancer, has saved thousands of lives.  The PSA test and advances in treatment have led to a 40 percent reduction in prostate cancer deaths since the mid-1990s, according to the National Cancer Institute.  Because of the PSA test, 90 percent of all prostate cancers are now discovered before they spread outside the gland, according to the American Cancer Society's own data.  

Dr. Patrick C. Walsh, distinguished professor of urology at Johns Hopkins University noted, "Because prostate cancer produces no symptoms until it's too far advanced to cure, as appropriate, men should have a PSA test and examination. Until an alternative exists, prostate cancer testing is the best option we have to allow men to make an informed decision."

Despite misleading claims by the ACS, the value of early detection through PSA testing is supported by more than a dozen leading U.S. organizations.
