PSA may useful for prostate cancer survival after all

Science Daily – Mar. 10, 2014 – Men are less likely to die of prostate cancer in areas where the PSA test is frequently used compared to areas where it is seldom used, according to a study published online today in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Based on two large cancer registries in Sweden, the study mirrors the results of similar study done in a large randomized European study that showed PSA testing reduced the risk of dying from prostate cancer, however it runs counter to the 2012 recommendation of the US Preventive Services Task Force.
