Prostate Cancer Screening and Early Detection: Should We Follow the NCCN Guidelines? Con Argument – Summary:

Robert E. Donohue, MD, argues against urologists adhering to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Prostate Cancer Screening and Early Detection Guidelines. He proposes his own definitive answers to controversial questions relating to the use of digital rectal exams and PSA tests in baseline evaluation, indications for biopsy and biopsy technique, the age for initiation and discontinuation of testing, the frequency of testing, screening in high-risk populations, and which biomarkers to use. 

The “pro” rebuttal to this presentation is “Prostate Cancer Screening and Early Detection: Should We Follow the NCCN Guidelines? Pro Argument” by A. Karim Kader, MD, PhD.
