Study Revives Debate on Prostate Drug
Date:3/31/2010

last year by the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Urological Association carefully sidestep the issue, saying that men should discuss it with their physicians.

Even those guidelines have become part of the debate.

Andriole said the new study may cause newer guidelines to be "a bit less ambiguous about wording," whereas Walsh noted that the guidelines said that the potential for an increased incidence of aggressive cancers had to be weighted against the possible benefit of the drug.
