|4/10/2013 - Men, especially after the age of 50, have long been told they need to be screened regularly for the dreaded disease of prostate cancer with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test.

|5/18/2009 - A new study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute adds more evidence to the increasingly prevalent belief that regular prostate screenings may lead to more harm than good for older men.
Under current recommendations, most men over the age of 50 are advised to regularly undergo a screening...|
|5/15/2009 - Regular prostate screening provides no benefit for the majority of men over the age of 75 and should be discontinued, according to a study conducted by researchers from Johns Hopkins University and published in the Journal of Urology.

The study involved 50 men who had undergone surgery or radiation but quickly experienced...|
|8/24/2006 - The prostate specific antigen (PSA) test is the primary method of determining whether a male patient has prostate cancer or not, but it can generate false positives -- elevated levels of PSA without any cancerous cells -- so Johns Hopkins University researchers have developed a test that may be more...|

According to a team of researchers from the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer...|
|7/21/2006 - Recent studies suggest that testing blood for prostate specific antigen (PSA) alone does not produce an ideal predictor of prostate cancer, and emerging data suggest this is especially true for obese men.
