  • Expert Consultation on Prostate Cancer Screening and Early Detection in Latin America and the Caribbean. Meeting Report.
    Prostate cancer meeting report EN Late-stage diagnosis of prostate cancer contributes to the high mortality rates in LAC; however, screening and early detection of prostate cancer present a number of challenges. The use of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) remains controversial and the scientific community has not yet reached consensus on population-based prostate cancer screening strategies.
