One of the big problems that's sure to keep screening for prostate cancer a hot controversial topic is that the PSA test in inadequate and is not prostate cancer specific. PCF and their young researchers posted this today at the PCF website. This is a genetic test that is being researched than can help ID bad prostate cancer from the indolent prostate cancer.tinyurl.com/bnus3kc
It looks like it can help but it isn't alone going to be a problem solver. We will need years to test it's efficacy but it will certainly be nice if it does what is being advertised. And if it does then we might all be on the same side about
population based screening.
