Abstract

Despite the results of two large, but conflicting, trials published side by side in 2009, whether prostate cancer screening is beneficial or harmful (or indeterminate) remains unresolved. Those on either side of the debate read the same information but interpret it differently, declaring that it supports their unchanged positions.
