Age and PSA predict likelihood of organ-confined disease in men presenting with PSA less than 10 ng/mL: Implications for screening
Early Detection of Cancer
After controlling for other covariates, the rate of NOCD increased in proportion to age and pretreatment PSA level in men initially diagnosed with a serum PSA level less than 10 ng/mL. These observations suggest that younger men with a lower PSA are more likely to have organ-confined and curable disease at diagnosis. This information has important implications for counseling and screening.
