  1. Sociodemographic and health status characteristics associated with prostate cancer screening in a national cohort of middle-aged male veterans.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives

    To characterize variables associated with obtaining prostate cancer screening in a nonclinical, nationally distributed, middle-aged male population.

    Methods

    Telephone interviews were administered to 2652 individual members of the Vietnam Era Twin Registry in 1992 and 1995.

    Dependent variables were self-report measures of having had a digital rectal examination (DRE) and/or a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test in the past 5 years.

    Independent variables were current measures of age, household income, education, race, insurance, source of care, and lifetime measures of physical condition, psychiatric illness, and alcohol and nicotine dependence.

    Results

    Thirty-five percent of the sample reported having had a PSA and DRE within the past 5 years.

    Prevalence of obtaining either a PSA or DRE varied with age, income, education, and race.

    Subjects with a regular source of care, a regular physician, and health insurance reported higher rates of having had a DRE or PSA and DRE.

    Persons with a physical or psychiatric illness reported more screening.

    A multiple regression model revealed that having a regular source of care, having a regular physician, physical illness, psychiatric illness, minority status, higher income, and age predicted having had some form of screening.

    Conclusions

    A substantial portion of middle-aged men have had both a PSA and DRE performed at least once in the preceding 5 years. (...)
