Get the Facts About PSA Screening
Recently the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended healthy men no longer receive prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood tests as part of routine cancer screening. This decision is being made by a panel that does not include a single urologist or medical oncologist and is chaired by a pediatrician. In 2009, this same task force suggested mammograms were unnecessary for women ages 40-49 and recommended against teaching women to do breast self exams.
At Adult & Pediatric Urology we strongly disagree with the task force’s latest findings.
