This study aimed to review the effect of decision aids on men's screening intention, screening utilization, and the congruence between intentions and uptake.Evidence acquisitionData sources were searched through April 6, 2018, and included MEDLINE, Scopus, CENTRAL, CT.gov, Cochrane report, PsycARTICLES, PsycINFO, and reference lists. This study included RCTs and observational studies of decision aids that measured prostate screening intention or behavior. The analysis was completed in April 2018.Evidence synthesisEighteen studies (13 RCTs, four before–after studies, and one non-RCT) reported data on screening intenti...

Perineural spread of prostate cancer into pelvic peripheral nerves is a rare but increasingly recognized entity. This form of metastasis invades the lumbosacral plexus via splanchnic nerves innervating the prostate. The prevalence of perineural spread is likely underappreciated and further imaging based studies are needed to elucidate its true frequency.

People living with HIV are at increased risk for AIDS-defining and non-AIDS-defining cancers, but little is known about their risk of first versus second primary cancers. We identified first and second primary cancers that occurred in above population expected numbers among people diagnosed with HIV in San Francisco, and compared first and second ...

Decision aids should ideally promote clinical equipoise. However, the data from this study suggest some variation to which this is applied, given the differing results on how they altered the pre-exposure intent to undergo or recommend PSA screening. Although there was some change of opinion, a common theme is that the pre-exposure intent was unchanged in the majority of individuals who worked through any of these decision aids. The results are somewhat similar to our experience with testing a decision aid in a randomized controlled trial of a controversial aspect of prostate cancer care.
