A Joint Statement From America's Prostate Cancer Advocacy, Education, and Support Organizations
Date:3/23/2009

request the appropriate use of PSA and DRE tests until better options are available. Further clinical action based on results of these tests is also a matter for serious discussion between each patient and his physicians.

* We call upon the federal government to emphasize the need for more research into early detection technologies and methods that will lead to better and more accurate diagnosis of prostate cancer.

* We call upon Congress to increase funding for the Prostate Cancer Research Program at the Department of Defense.

* We call upon the National Institutes of Health to increase funding for prostate cancer research through the National Cancer Institute.

* We call upon the medical research community to place greater emphasis on the development of new clinical tests that can differentiate between those men at greatest need for aggressive prostate cancer treatment and those with indolent forms of the disease who can be well managed without invasive treatment.

This statement is approved by the following U.S.-based prostate cancer advocacy, education, and support organizations:

* Malecare Prostate Cancer Support - www.malecare.com
