PURPOSE Longitudinal changes in prostate specific antigen are increasingly used to guide the recommendation for biopsy. Prostate specific antigen velocity 0.75 ng/ml yearly has been proposed to distinguish prostate cancer from benign prostate conditions. However, this threshold might be too high in young men with lower total prostate specific antigen. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a large prostate cancer screening study 6,844 men were 60 years or younger at study entry and prostate specific… CONTINUE READING
