Abstract

Many western countries, including Switzerland. Various organizations have recently recommended against routine screening, notably due to the high risk of overdiagnosis or overtreatment. Our aim was to examine whether recent changes in secular trends in the incidence and mortality of prostate cancer, as well as prostatectomy rates have been observed in Switzerland.
