Is a Prostate Screening Test Right For You?

I am a huge believer in the power of cancer screening tests in general. Every year 233,000 men in the United States learn that they have prostate cancer– this is one in every seven men during his lifetime hearing the words: “you have prostate cancer.” However, the situation with PSA screening is more complex than other screenings due to false-positives. If you are at high risk for prostate cancer, talk with your doctor to determine if a PSA test is right for you. Make sure you understand the potential harms of intervention.”
