BARRIOS LOPEZ, Yusimy; PERERA FERNANDEZ, Francisco; CARVAJAL BELTRAN, Irma Iris  y  PEREZ RODRIGUEZ, Arnoldo. Screening for prostate cancer in 8 health areas from Santiago de Cuba province. MEDISAN [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.3, pp.376-382. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out in 28 917 men over 50 years of age, belonging to 8 health areas of Santiago de Cuba, from November 2007 to July 2010, to determine the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and thus detect prostate cancer hidden morbidity. The test was performed in 18 007 screened individuals, of whom 1 745 had pathological findings, and of them 1 630 were evaluated at the urology department of the selected polyclinic according to the established flow chart. Finally, 125 males were diagnosed with the disease, so that it was confirmed the importance of having a greater dissemination of PSA test, benefits of which allow the family physician to know the health of their patients, and the risk population obtain such assistance annually through the doctor's offices.

Palabras clave : prostate cancer; prostate-specific antigen; diagnostic tests; prostate cancer morbidity.
