  • If this were the case, then one could envision that certain capsular types might in fact follow a different age-specific incidence.

  • There was no evidence of a Marin County deficit in later-stage cancers, mortality rates remained stable despite distinct mortality declines observed in comparison regions, and disparate age-specific incidence trends were observed within the larger age group (aged 40+ years) targeted by screening programs [ 6 ] . In addition, mammography utilization data do not suggest substantially elevated rates of screening among Marin County women.

We also looked at stratum-specific likelihood ratios and predictive values for the following PSA strata: < 2 ng/ml, ≥ 2 - 4 ng/ml, > 4 - 10 ng/ml, > 10 - 20 ng/ml, and > 20 ng/ml.
