Además de responder a estas preguntas y otras muchas, con esta aplicación usted podrá rellenar un cuestionario de síntomas prostáticos para ver si no tiene síntomas, o sí tiene en grado leve, moderado o severo. También podrá anotar sus PSAs o las indicaciones que su médico le vaya dando.
La aplicación tiene como única finalidad proporcionar información y orientación sobre los temas relacionados con la próstata. En ningún caso puede sustituir a la consulta con su médico de Atención Primaria o con su Urológo. Al contrario, entre las recomendaciones que se le hagan, siempre estará la de acudir a su médico.
No todos los aspectos pueden ser tratados con la profundidad o el acierto que quizá merezcan. Conscientes de ello proponemos a los usuarios interesados que nos hagan llegar, por mediación del correo electrónico (firstname.lastname@example.org) aquellas sugerencias que crean oportunas para mejorar la aplicación.
Topics include common pathologies considered part of Primary Care, such as mild urologic emergencies, benign prostatic hyperplasia, urinary tract infections, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and male infertility. For Urologists, it is especially useful as a quick guide for managing emergencies (e.g. priapism, sepsis, Fournier’s gangrene), uncommon diseases (e.g. urogenital TBC, postsurgical chylous ascites, recurrent nocturnal erections), perioperative care (e.g. antithrombotic and antibiotic prophylaxis, electrolytic and metabolic alterations), urological oncology, etc. Other useful sections are those on normal lab values, drugs used in Urology, or the illustrated atlas of dermatological conditions of male genitals, including malignant and premalignant lesions and venereal diseases. The application also includes a chapter index and an index of abbreviations to make it easy to find the information in 2 or 3 screen touches.
Other functions are:
- Urology links: in-app browser access to several websites (e.g. calendars of urologic events, journals, validated questionnaires, prostate, bladder and kidney nomograms, free testosterone calculator and more).
- Room for notes: available in each section to add your own information.
- Voice notes: to record a conference or save your own voice notes.
- Suggestion pages: send your comments, corrections, or suggestions to improve the application. Send your favourite web links. We will include them in later updates.

The Prostate Cancer Research Foundation, Rotterdam, Stichting Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek Prostaatkanker (SWOP), is an initiative of the Department of Urology of the Erasmus MC, the University and Medical Centre of Rotterdam, in The Netherlands. Its goal is the financial support of scientific research projects in the field of prostate cancer, as well as other cancers of the urinary tract.
Please be aware that the Rotterdam Prostate Cancer Risk Calculator for Android cannot be 100% accurate at predicting the presence or absence of prostate cancer. It is designed to help calculate your risk, not give a definitive diagnosis.
The Rotterdam Prostate Cancer Risk Calculator for Android provides a general risk calculation based on your PSA level and other information.
While knowing your PSA level is helpful, the decision to have a PSA test has to be taken seriously after weighing up all factors and discussing the implications with your GP or hospital doctor.
It is possible that prostate cancer will not be found even if you have an elevated PSA. However, it may be present even if your PSA level is low.
Your doctor may want to take further tests. If you have doubts or questions about your health, you should always contact your GP or hospital doctor. This is particularly important if you have questions which arise from the use of our prostate cancer risk calculator.
It cannot be ruled out that the way the Rotterdam Prostate Cancer Risk Calculator for Android is used, or the indications given by it, are interpreted in a manner that is not appropriate. The creators of the Rotterdam Prostate Cancer Risk Calculator for Android do not accept any responsibility in any respect.
The European Randomized Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer has published its 11-year follow-up results (New England Journal of Medicine, March 15 2012). Once again, they demonstrate that screening does significantly reduce death from prostate cancer. The latest study confirms that a man who undergoes PSA testing will have his risk of dying from prostate cancer reduced by 29%.
ERSPC is the world’s largest randomized prostate cancer screening study. It was designed to investigate whether early detection and treatment of prostate cancer might reduce disease-specific mortality and also help to identify men at risk. From 1992, the ERSPC study randomized 162,000 men, aged 55 to 69, across Europe to either a screening arm or a control group.

In addition to answering these questions and many others, with this application, you can fill out a questionnaire of prostate symptoms to determine the presence or degree of symptoms you may have (mild, moderate, or severe). You can also record your PSAs or your physician recommendations.
This application is only intended to provide information and guidance on issues related to the prostate. This information should not replace consultation with your primary physician or your urologist. Visiting your physicians is among the various recommendations that are made.
Not all aspects of care can be discussed with the depth they deserve. As we are aware of this, we propose that interested users communicate with us via email (email@example.com). We welcome your suggestions to improve the application.
