I wonder if you made any specific intervention at the examination and
want to see the effect of this intervention on survival. Otherwise you
may consider using attained age as analysis time for the survival
analysis, as there is no exact point in time when the persons came
under risk or change in risk. In that case you do not need an exact
date for the start of the analysis.

See some of the references below (I can give you more exact refernce
if you contact me directly.

Stocks 2010 on prostate cancer
Qiao 2009 on metabolic syndrome and stroke
Luo 2008 on pancreas cancer
Lamarca 1998 attained age survival analysis
Cheung 2003 survival analysis attained age
