“The Melbourne Consensus Statement on the Early Detection of Prostate Cancer.”
British Journal of Urology International 2012 epub Nov 8. PMID: 24206066
In light of numerous conflicting recommendations about prostate cancer screening, in August 2013 a multidisciplinary group convened in Melbourne, Australia to create consensus practice guidelines. Key areas of consensus are that level 1 evidence shows that prostate cancer screening saves lives among men ages 50-69, but that biopsy decisions should be made using PSA as part of a multivariable approach and that diagnosis must be uncoupled from treatment.
