Abstract

* Currently there is significant confusion and polarisation about prostate cancer screening for both patients and physicians alike. * We propose a risk-adjusted testing programme, which would lead to fewer patients who need to be tested and treated to save a life and also eliminate inappropriate prostate-specific antigen testing in the elderly and patients with severe co-morbidities where there is no clear benefit.
