With two studies released about a month ago regarding prostate cancer screenings and their utility, I am still making an announcement that our department is again giving free prostate checks
on Thursday, May 28, at Miller Park.
There is too much to explain regarding the analysis of those two studies
on this blog. I will say this: Despite the studies, the American Urological Association subsequently came out in support of the screenings
for "asymptomatic men 40 years of age or older who have a life expectancy of at least 10 years." And I am hoping that men who have a history of prostate cancer or African-American men will come and get a free prostate and PSA check. These are still life-saving and relatively benign tests.
