National Panel Releases Revised Prostate Cancer Screening Recommendations

The American Urological Association (AUA), today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) final recommendation statement on Screening for Prostate Cancer.

It's recommending men older than 70 not get screened.

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.

We agree with the USPSTF that African American men and men with a family history of prostate cancer are at an increased risk of developing the disease, and that they should discuss with their physicians the benefits and risks of testing in order to make a shared, informed decision.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the companies' existing licenses to sell planes to Iran would be invalidated. She said Airbus will remain "in full compliance with USA sanctions and export control regulations".

The Council, comprised of a consortium of leading physicians, health educators, scientists and prostate cancer advocates, aims to conduct nationwide screenings for men and perform research that will aid in the detection and treatment of prostate conditions. But researchers have found that testing for the prostate-specific antigen can save lives.

Ray says progress has been made in the surgical treatment of prostate cancer, including the use of robot technology and other techniques to lower risks of urinary control problems or sexual dysfunction.

"Throughout the years, we've continued to stand by evidence-based information to raise awareness and equip patients and providers for decision-making around prostate health", said Wendy Poage, president of the PCEC.

Attributed to medical and health sector, Melissa very well knows and understands genes, tissues, antidotes, and many other terminologies. An estimated 29,000 men died and 165,000 men are anticipated to be detected with prostate cancer in this year. "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". Clinicians should not screen men who do not express a preference for screening. Its new guidance, echoing other groups' advice and affirming its draft recommendations issued past year, was published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
