Panel recommends no more PSA test as a screening tool

| October 7, 2011

Wonder how the laboratory and urology community will do with this information:

U.S. Panel Says No to Prostate Screening for Healthy Men

Apparently the serum test as well as the rectal exam and ultrasound are not effective either. This is for healthy men without symptoms only.  Not sure what the effective screening tool is then because you screen healthy, not ill individuals.  Certain to be a lot of pushback, fighting, action groups, political battles and contradictory data to this new recommendation. Stay tuned.
