Value of a confirmatory PSA test in men undergoing screening for prostate cancer
Our primary aims are to: 1. Describe the follow-up algorithms of men who had an abnormal PSA level, 2. Describe the diagnostic PSA results stratified by age and screening PSA level. 2. Compare the short-term prostate cancer outcomes (biopsy rate and the prostate cancer yield, stage and grade of each algorithm).
