8 Things Younger Men Should Know About Prostate Cancer

May 8 (UPI) -- A panel of experts on Tuesday updated its prostate cancer screening guidelines, recommending the test should be an individual decision for men between age 55 and 69 and advising men older than 70 skip it altogether.

The United States Preventive Services Task Force revised its recommendation from 2012, which discouraged prostate-specific antigen screening for men of all ages, regardless of family history or race. This was based on grade D evidence suggesting that the harms of testing outweigh the benefits.
