I found the above referrenced article in today's newspaper. It seems researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering and colleagues from Lund University in Sweden are saying this........"At age 60, half of all men with a PSA of 1.0 or lower are at very low risk of prostate cancer, and it is difficult to see how they would benefit from further screening. But 90% of men who die from prostate cancer have a reading of 2.0 or higher and should continue screening."
"Blood samples were analyzed in 1981/82 from 1167 men who were born in 1921 and compared against cancer registries through 2006 at which time the men had either died or reached their 85th birthday. There were 43 cases of advanced PCa and 35 deaths from PCa. The advanced cases and deaths were concentrated in the group whose PSA values were 2.0 or higher @ age 60."
I was feeling well until I picked up today's paper!
