Message From Prostate Cancer Canada



Today at 12 noon EDT, The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC ) will release guidelines recommending that the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test not be used to screen for prostate cancer based on evidence that shows an increased risk of harm and uncertain benefits. Prostate Cancer Canada disagrees with the recommendations and has launched a full-scale multi-channel campaign to remind Canadians that the benefits of PSA screening far outweigh the negatives.

Hello everyone,

If you have an extra minute, please visit the Global website and cast an online vote on this issue: (scroll to the middle page of the page, and vote ‘No, it’ll help men measure their risk’ in keeping with PCC’s position)

Thank you again for your support and please let me know if you have any questions etc.
