In 10 seconds? Some experts argue that it’s not worth screening for prostate cancer. While the procedure has decreased prostate cancer mortality, it has also led to high numbers of harmless cancers being flagged, which leads to more harm than good.
Sorry but that sounds like abandoning people with positive cases... OK, I know it might sound controversial at first but consider this: most prostate cancers aren’t destined to spread. It’s been discovered that the majority of diagnosed prostate cancers (55%) are unlikely to ever cause symptoms or negatively impact patient survival. This finding is supported by autopsy data showing that many men over the age of 60, who died of other causes, had evidence of prostate cancer. In other words, many men die with prostate cancer, but not of prostate cancer.
