 Conclusions: The benefit of PSA screening was diminished by loss of QALYs owing to postdiagnosislong-term effects. Longer follow-up data from both the ERSPC and quality-of-lifeanalyses are essential before universal recommendations regarding screening can be made.

Conclusion: The decision to be screened should depend on personal preferences. The negative impact of screening might be reduced by screening men who are more willing to accept the side effects from treatment.

On the basis of identified evidence and the expert opinion of the panel (Table 1 provides a description of how recommendations and evidence are rated): In men with a life expectancy 10 years,* it is recommended that physicians discuss with their patients whether PSA testing for prostate cancer screening is appropriate for them. PSA testing may save lives but is associated with harms, including complications, from unnecessary biopsy, surgery, or radiation treatment.Type and strength of recommendation. Evidence based: strong.Strength of evidence. For benefit, moderate; for harm, strong: based on five RCTs (and several cohort studies) with intermediate to high risk of bias, moderate follow-up, indirect data, inconsistent results, and limited data on subgroup populations.It is recommended that information written in lay language be available to clinicians and their patients to facilitate the discussion of the benefits and harms associated with PSA testing before the routine ordering of a PSA test.Type and strength of recommendation. Informal consensus: strong.Strength of evidence. Indeterminate: evidence was not systematically reviewed to inform this recommendation; however, randomized trials are available on the topic.*Calculation of life expectancy is based on a variety of individual factors and circumstances. A number of life expectancy calculators (eg, are available in the public domain; however, ASCO does not endorse any one calculator over another
