Jemal A, Ma J, Siegel R, Fedewa S, Brawley O, Ward EM. Prostate Cancer Incidence Rates 2 Years After the US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendations Against Screening. JAMA Oncol. 2016;2(12):1657–1660. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2016.2667
We previously reported a substantial decline in early-stage prostate cancer incidence rates from 2011 to 2012 in men 50 years or older residing in areas covered by the population-based Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program.1 This pattern coincided with the decline in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing in this age group between 2010 and 2013 following the US Preventive Services Task Force recommendation against routine PSA testing in all men in October 2011 in draft form and in May 2012 in final form, which was preceded by a 2008 recommendation against PSA testing in men 75 years or older.2 Whether the decrease in incidence rates persisted through 2013 is unknown.
