Otis Brawley: I have never had a PSA and do not desire one. I have had relatives with the disease. I just do not believe it saves that many lives.
Mr. Brawley is the medical and scientific officer of the American Cancer Society

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Author-journalist Joe McGinniss says he was diagnosed in May with advanced prostate cancer but is responding well to treatment and feels “terrific.”
The 70-year-old McGinniss is best known for controversial works such as “The Selling of the President” and “Fatal Vision.” On Wednesday, he posted on his Facebook page that he had “inoperable, terminal, metastatic prostate cancer.” He confirmed the diagnosis in response to an email from The Associated Press and in a subsequent Facebook posting.
McGinniss told the AP that he has no symptoms and is eager to write more books and magazine articles.

This is sick. Especially coming from a doctor who should know better and from someone who has no personal knowledge of Mr. Mcguiness’s medical history. In fact, it’s possible that he may have had his prostate removed several years ago and still have been diagnosed with “inoperable” cancer two years ago as mentioned in a “press release. ” In any case, whatever his history, his single case is nothing but an anecdote, with absolutely no application to Brawley’s stance against blind screening.
