Abstract Prostate cancer screening using PSA is controversial because of a low specificity and detection of non clinically relevant cancer. Two important studies have been published recently. One of two studies suggests a 20% lowering in specific prostate cancer mortality due to PSA screening. This benefit is relevant but implies at a high risk of overtreatment and treatment-related complications. Currently PSA screening is only proposed as an individual screening for informed patients.
