Prostate cancer screening and treatment

Professor Otis Brawley discusses the risks and benefits associated with prostate cancer screening and treatment.

Consequently it is not possible to determine the true effectiveness of treatments or to provide reliable advise if the potential benefits of treatment outweigh the associated side effects.
