Detection of Prostate Cancer in 2020 and Beyond
I am providing the main points as mentioned in the article by Van Poppel et al (2020) on â€˜Early Detection of Prostate Cancer in 2020 and Beyondâ€™ with suggestion of changes made by Laura Evangelista and Egesta Lopci* (2021). These flowcharts will help us as how we should evaluate patients suspected of P Ca taking into consideration towards minimizing of over diagnosis and thus unnecessary evaluations and treatment.
As we are now aware that P Ca can have different outcomes between Orientals and Caucasians, will the same proposed strategy will be useful in helping to detect csP Ca and thus avoid unnecessary Evaluations but at the same time not missing patients who need treatment and not Active Surveillance. The latter is not followed routinely in India but few centres are practicing it on highly educated clients.
I would appreciate our experts to spell out whether these proposals are suitable for our country.
With warm Regards,
