Dr Anna Gavin - Queen's University Belfast, Belfast, UK

Dr Gavin talks to ecancertv at IARC 2016 about prostate cancer screening with particular reference to Ireland. 

By comparing the North and South of Ireland, with their different health systems and screening policies but similar populations, the researchers found that greater screening in the South arguably leads to overtreatment and the health issues associated with it.
