New Prostate Screening Guidelines

Men 55 and older may not need to bother with prostate cancer screenings. Afterwards, in 2012, the USPSTF (United States Preventative Services Task Force) claimed that PSA testing did more damage than good.

The European test displayed that a screening was able to save 1 death by prostate cancer for each 1,000 males screened between the age of 55 and 69.

Regarding the USPSTF's advice to not screen men over age 70: While we agree that a number of older men are not candidates for prostate cancer testing, we believe that select older, healthier men may garner a benefit.

That's because prostate cancer grows slowly and over-treatment can cause impotence and incontinence. As a result, most men receive surgery or radiation to treat their prostate cancer and many of these men do not benefit from the treatments. These men include African-Americans and those with a family history of prostate cancer, especially if a father or brother developed the disease before age 70. We thank the USPSTF for implementing strategies to solicit feedback from the community on its research plan; for engaging urologists to review the evidence report upon which these recommendations were based; and for taking into account comments from the prostate cancer community in finalizing this guidance. "Men should discuss the benefits and harms of screening with their doctor, so they can make the best choice for themselves based on their values and individual circumstances". "Men at higher risk for prostate cancer should talk about this with their doctor when considering whether to be screened, but they should also weigh the potential benefits and harms when deciding whether screening is right for them". Its new guidance, echoing other groups' advice and affirming its draft recommendations issued a year ago, was published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

USPSTF, Vice Chairman, Dr. Krist, Prof.at Virginia Commonwealth University, Family medicine, and Population Health, said, "The prolonged follow up of 10+ years in this research, which was not handy in 2012, had a huge contribution in the decision of making the changes in the guidelines of screening".
