Panel's Rejection of PSA Test Spurs Mixed Reaction From Experts
Date:10/8/2011

"the draft of the USPSTF review does provide evidence that PSA screening reduces prostate cancer mortality -- albeit not in as great a magnitude to be called optimal."

Prostate cancer remains the second most common cause of cancer death in men after lung cancer, Banez noted. "Thus, a slight reduction in mortality could still translate in a substantial absolute number of lives saved. Though it is clear that we still need to find a better test to improve early detection of significant disease and to curtail over-treatment, it is not advisable to discourage use of a currently existing test that is proven to save lives," he said.
