Prostate Cancer: Guideline Recommendations and Emerging Therapies

Activity description

This activity consists of recorded presentations from the "27th Annual National Conference" held Oct. 15–17, 2018, in Minneapolis, Minn.

Prostate cancer is the leading cause of cancer in men in the United States and the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in this population. Recommendations for prostate cancer screening differ among published guidelines. Until recently, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) advised against PSA-based screening; however, they are in the process of revising and updating its screening recommendations based on data showing that PSA-based screening for prostate cancer among men age 55–69 years may reduce mortality. In addition, the treatment landscape for prostate cancer is continually evolving. This presentation will review the most current guidelines for prostate cancer screening, as well as new and emerging treatments for prostate cancer.
