Prostate Cancer

In 2014, The Task Force guideline recommended against PSA screening,
BUT the Task Force did not include any clinician or scientist with a background in prostate cancer.

“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Canadian men, AND sadly the 3rd leading cause of death. Screening has been proven to significantly reduce mortality. 

The Task Force’s recommendation against screening is outdated, overly simplistic, and goes against other guidelines…

Canadian men deserve to have the right to decide what is important to them, and family physicians need to stop being confused by recommendations that go against logic and evidence.” — Dr Fred Saad, Urologist, Past President, Canadian Urological Association, Press Conference, April 15, 2024.
