PSA pioneer declares prostate cancer test useless

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

It's never a good thing when the man who created a test announces that it is absolutely useless in effectively detecting prostate cancer. The PSA test is commonly used by physicians to determine if a patient is suffering from prostate cancer by looking at levels of PSA in the blood.

Dr. Thomas Stamey, the PSA pioneer, has conducted trials that show PSA levels can be elevated for a variety of reasons and may not require invasive surgery. Dr. Stamey is pushing for the development of new, definitive tests such as the yearly rectal scan for men over 50 to detect prostate cancer.
