The US Preventive Services Task Force may move away from its long-standing opposition to routine PSA screening for prostate cancer in some men.

“We remain particularly concerned about the striking absence of evidence to guide these high-risk men specifically as they make decisions about screening,” she said. “Additional research on prostate cancer in African American men should be a national priority.”
