Prof Richard Martin - University of Bristol, Bristol, UK

Richard Martin speaks with ecancer about the recent findings that a single PSA screening did not improve prostate cancer mortality for men any more than not being screened.

He describes the recruitment and administration of the trial, and the potential implications for mens health that these findings present.

Dr Martin advises screening for older men in line with current guidelines, and considers other streams of research in prostate cancer screening that may improve PSA screening accuracy, or otherwise reduce the rate of mis-diagnosed or missed disease.

Dr Martin also spoke with ecancer about the ICEP research scheme.
