Prostate cancer test debated as effective method of treatment

This is one of our most important shows affecting the lives of every healthy male 50 and over. We shot this show on on Tuesday October 18, 2011. It brings you the full flavor of the current hot discussion affecting all men, and their partners too. Is Prostate cancer testing an effective method of treatment?

A new study concludes that the traditional way to test men for prostate cancer is not effective and should significantly alter how physicians and patients view the disease.

Healthy men should NO LONGER receive a P.S.A. blood test to screen for prostate cancer, according to the United States Preventative Services Task Force, a government health panel comprised of medical experts in a report released in mid-October, 2011. The panel suggests that the test does not save lives, instead leading to more tests and treatments that cause pain, impotence and incontinence for men who do not need to experience such debilitating side effects.

Graceful Aging host Gregory Bator discussed the findings of this task force and other urology subjects with Dr. Michael Lutz, a partner with the Michigan Institute of Urology, P.C. the third largest such practice in the country. Lutz is certified in the specialty of Urology by the American Board of Urology and is an expert in urological oncology (cancer), male fertility and urologic stone disease.
