Prostate cancer screening

Very interesting. The USPTF did not recommend that men unstable age 75 not be screened. They stated that there is insufficient evidence to demonstrate that it helps. However, contrary to what is being reported, they did not recommend against it in men under age 75. This is in contradistinction to men 75 or older in whom the task force clearly recommended against prostate cancer screening.
Like anything else, the devil lies in the details.
