Abstract

The Urology Service at Brooke Army Medical Center has conducted routine screening rectal examinations for early diagnosis of carcinoma of the prostate since 1979. A review of the incidence of carcinoma of the prostate reveals that routine screening has yielded a significant increase in disease incidence. This incidence appears higher than national averages. It is apparent that a commitment to early diagnosis through screening for carcinoma of the prostate also requires a commitment in medical resources.
