Abstract

Introduction of screening for prostate cancer using the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) marker of the disease led to remarkable dynamics of the incidence of the disease observed in the last two decades. A statistical model is used to provide a link between dissemination of PSA and the observed transient population responses. The model is used to estimate lead time, overdiagnosis and other relevant characteristics of prostate cancer screening.
