Description A study of 278,409 cases of prostate cancer covering preand post prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing periods shows a large, but apparently temporary increase in the number of moderate cases (5-7 on the Gleason scale), but only a slight increase in the well (Gleason 2-4) and poor (Gleason 8-10) categories of tumors.
