British Medical Journal Survey

Dr Sarah Cant, Head of Policy and Campaigns at The Prostate Cancer Charity, spoke to the Daily Telegraph, BBC News Online and the Mature Times, about the results of a survey published by the British Medical Journal, which suggests  that a single blood test for every man aged 60 could save tens of thousands of lives by pinpointing those most at risk from prostate cancer. Dr Cant said the study presented an interesting proposition which takes the ongoing PSA and screening debate in a new direction, but that long-term research in a greater number and range of men would be needed to determine whether the approach would work.
