Vanderbilt Study: Obesity May Hamper Prostate Cancer Detection

A study by Vanderbilt-Ingram's Jay Fowke, Ph.D., M.P.H has been picked up in an Oct. 9, 2006, Reuters article:

“It may be that obese men should be concerned about a lower PSA level than if they were slender, said Jay Fowke of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

"They tested blood from 150 black men and 149 white men. They found the more overweight the men were, the lower their PSA levels. Race appeared to have no effect."
