Take Control of Your Health

Ease your worries and take control by receiving clear answers to the state of your health. If you have started showing symptoms it is important that you receive a diagnosis and treatment quickly. Do not wait and let your health be negatively affected by the long healthcare lines. 

Early Diagnostics Saves Lives

By detecting and diagnosing cancer early, even before first symptoms, you improve your chances of successful treatment. This can be the difference between a good and bad prognosis, and even life or death. 

The gateway into the standardised healthcare program for prostate cancer

Cancer - A Common Cause of Death

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the world, and takes the lives of millions every year. Prostate cancer is responsible for a large portion of them, and is the most common form of cancer in Sweden. Every year about 10.000 Swedish men get diagnosed with prostate cancer, and for many it is too late.

The Effects of COVID-19 

The effects of the Corona epidemic on the health care system resulted in all regions of the country being prompted to abstain from PSA testing men who do not show any clinical signs of prostate cancer. According to many doctors, such as Ola Bratt, chairman of the healthcare program and professor in urology at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, due to the lack of testing the gateway into the prostate cancer healthcare system was essentially closed (from the Swedish Medical Magazine, March 19, 2020). 

March 17, 2020 a new healthcare program for prostate cancer was initiated. It provides all men over the age of 40 who do not show symptoms of prostate cancer, the option of leaving a PSA sample, followed by an MRI if the results show a slightly increased PSA value. The purpose of the healthcare program was to both diagnose prostate cancer at an early stage, and to prevent over diagnosing from conducting MRIs before biopsies.

Thanks to the new healthcare program that combines PSA testing with MRI exams, the downsides of over diagnostics are limited, as mentioned in the Swedish Social Office's brochure about PSA testing.

The pros of combining PSA testing with MRI exams was the foundation for an extensive study (G2) led by Jonas Hugosson, professor at the Gothenburg University, and one of the world's most renowned surgeons in the prostate cancer field, using both open and robotic (daVinci) surgery.
