一些專家不主張定期做前列腺癌檢查(US Panel Recommends Ending Routine Blood Test for Prostate Cancer )







A U.S. government panel Monday recommended against healthy men getting a routine test for prostate cancer -- an annual ritual for millions of men.

The Preventative Services Task Force, which advises U.S. health officials, says the simple blood test called a PSA may do more harm than good in healthy men.

The advisors say the test cannot distinguish tiny tumors that are not fatal from fast-growing ones that develop into cancer. They say this results in many men getting unneeded treatment for cancer, leaving them impotent or incontinent.

Some U.S. urologists strongly dispute the panel's recommendation, saying many men could suffer and die a painful death without the tests.

Prostate cancer kills about 30,000 American men a year.

Many men 50 years and older come down with prostate cancer. But the disease often develops so slowly that many victims never know they have it and often die from causes other than prostate cancer.


Prostate-specific antigen
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA), also known as gamma-seminoprotein or kallikrein-3 (KLK3), is a glycoprotein encoded in humans by the KLK3 gene. PSA is a member of the kallikrein-related peptidase family and is secreted by the epithelial cells of the prostate gland. PSA is produced for the ejaculate, where it liquefies semen in the seminal coagulum and allows sperm to swim freely.[2] It is also believed to be instrumental in dissolving cervical mucus, allowing the entry of sperm into the uterus.[3]

PSA is present in small quantities in the serum of men with healthy prostates, but is often elevated in the presence of prostate cancer or other prostate disorders.[citation needed] While serum PSA measurement is frequently used in prostate cancer screening, its value is controversial, and the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) does not recommend its routine use in healthy men.[4] The USPSTF found that PSA-based prostate cancer screening conveys small or non-existent reductions in prostate-cancer–specific mortality, and is associated with overdiagnosis and over-treatment.[5]


前列腺特異抗原(Prostate Specific Antigen ,PSA)血漿前列腺特異抗原濃度升高是提示前列腺癌的敏感監測指標;但不能作為確診指標。

f PSA /t PSA:前列腺特異抗原(PSA)有總前列腺特異抗原(tPSA)、結合前列腺特異抗原(cPSA)、遊離前列腺特異抗原(fPSA)之分,tPSA= cPSA+ fPSA ;f PSA /t PSA比值對於鑒別前列腺癌與良性前列腺增生比tPSA精確。

由於前列腺特異抗原(PSA)測試藥盒產自多家;t PSA,尤其是 f PSA /t PSA 、PSAD的正常值以測試實驗室提供數據為準。
