Prostate Cancer Screening
 
There has been a great deal of confusing information in the press about the validity and necessity of prostate cancer screening.  EHI recommends that all men follow the screenings guidelines as outlined by the American Urological Association, see below. 
 
“The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test should be offered to well-informed men age 40 years or older who have a life expectancy of at least 10 years.”
 
In early 2010, EHI’s Cancer Committee and other partners will host a Town Hall meeting on prostate cancer screening; the exact date and other details will be announced in February.
