USPSTF Recommendations against PSA-testing – a good thing?

2016-11-23

Presenters: Alberto Briganti and Declan Murphy

Early screening for prostate cancer has long been a controversial topic for urologists and oncologists alike. On the one hand it can detect cancer while it can still be treated, but on the other hand it also risks overtreatment and a subsequent decline in patients’ quality of life.

Expert urologists Profs. Declan Murphy and Alberto Briganti are set to debate the USPSTF recommendation against PSA testing, as well as the broader topic of early detection in view of the most recent data. Other screening techniques will also be discussed.
