Family History of Prostate Cancer and PSA-Based Screening

In a recent study, researchers looked into 12-year follow-up results to the Finnish Prostate Cancer Screening Trial to evaluate the relationship between prostate cancer screening and family history. Although family history is a known risk factor for developing prostate cancer, they curiously found no benefits to selectively screening men based on family history alone.

WSJ: Should MRI to Detect Prostate Cancer Become Standard of Care?

A growing body of evidence proves MRI can effectively identify suspicious lesions prior to biopsy.
