Outcomes of PSA Screening for Men Followed Over a 13-Year Period

About 102 out of 1,000 men who are screened will be diagnosed with prostate cancer versus about 68 out of 1,000 men who are not screened. About 5 out of 1,000 men who are screened for prostate cancer will die of prostate cancer versus about 6 out of 1,000 men who are not screened.

The largest study of prostate cancer screening so far showed that prostate cancer is more likely to be found with PSA testing than without PSA testing. And it showed that PSA testing may prevent a small number of men from dying of prostate cancer.

The information shown here is based on the best available evidence.
