Some men should consider prostate cancer screening, Task Force believes

Men aged 55 to 69 should have the right to be screened for prostate cancer, according to revised United States guidance that highlights a hard decision faced by millions in Britain.

"Different men will weigh the potential benefits and harms differently, so the most important thing for them to do is talk with their doctor - armed with the research and guidance provided by our recommendation - so that they can make an informed decision based on their values and individual situation", Krist said. 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.

The USPSTF said that men aged 70 and older should not be screened because of risks, such as the likelihood of false positives and increased testing. An estimated 29,000 men died and 165,000 men are anticipated to be detected with prostate cancer in this year. 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. Its new guidance, echoing other groups' advice and affirming its draft recommendations issued previous year, was published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

A key question is whether the patient has a higher-than-average risk for developing prostate cancer, says Dr. Michael Munger, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians.

With Men's Health Month (www.menshealthmonth.org) (June) fast approaching, now is a good time for men to discuss prostate cancer and other health screenings with their healthcare providers.

The AUA commends the USPSTF for its decision to maintain its upgraded recommendations for prostate cancer screening in men ages 55 to 69.

Findings from an evidence review conducted by the Task Force revealed that for men aged 55-69 years, PSA-based screening programs prevented roughly 1.3 deaths over approximately 13 years per 1000 men screened.
