Prospective cohort studies support that statin drug users have a lower risk of aggressive prostate cancer. Whether statin drug use influences risk of screen-detected disease is less clear, possibly because of complex detection biases. Thus, we investigated this association in a setting in which men had low baseline serum PSA concentration and were screened annually.
