Will doctors follow new PSA test advice? Signs aren’t great
Los Angeles Times

Is the routine PSA test to screen for prostate cancer going to fade away now that the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has recommended against it for men of all ages?

The signs are maybe not, according to a survey of primary care physicians done by Dr. Craig E. Pollack and colleagues at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The survey was done in November, after the task force’s draft recommendations had been released but before the final ones were published earlier this week in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
