was the time when Sweden got covered by FM andTV towers. No PSA testing was done at that time. Secondly, the incidence for all age groups start toincrease again abruptly right after 1997. Figure 3. The number of performed PSA tests per year started to increase from 1990 in Sweden and not in 1997 when the number of detected prostate cancer cases suddenly started to increase. Figure 1. Age-specific incidence of prostate cancer in Sweden reported since 1958 to 2005.
The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare(SOS) states that the latest trend break in 1997 iscaused by increasing use of PSA-testing. "Theincrease can mainly be explained by a special bloodtest, a so called PSA-test (prostate specific antigen)that is often taken as a step in investigatingsymptoms from the urine paths. PSA-tests are alsooften performed in connection with routine healthcheck-ups. An increased PSA-level gives a signalthat further investigations are needed, whichprobably causes that many cases today are detected

Well, if that was true we should expect decreasingmortality since 1997, but this is not the case, as can
The statement by our responsible authority (SOS),that increasing cancer rates are artifacts due to over-consumption of PSA tests, is not supported byscientific facts and is nothing but a private opinion.
This problem should be attacked by standardproblem solving methods and not buried by issuinga statement like the one mentioned above.
