Pages: 101-106


ABSTRACT: 15% of men diagnosed with cancer are prostate cancer, which is the most common diagnostic cancer in men. Studies estimate that prostate cancer under the age of 30 has increased by 5% and increased to 59% over the age of 79. Mass screening is a systematic examination of asymptomatic men at risk. The research is to analyze the information, to use the whole strategy for mass screening for prostate cancer in men. The object of the study are diagnostic methods for the detection of prostate cancer (digital rectal hereditary examination, prostate-specific antigen, genetic testing for PK, biomarkers, urinary biomarkers, imaging studies) and the possibility of their use. Diagnostic methods for the detection of prostate cancer for different age groups are summarized and analyzed, and a strategic plan for mass screening in men for early detection of prostate cancer is presented. As a result of the analysis, methods for evaluation of diagnostic methods for screening and early diagnosis of prostate cancer are presented.
