In 2012, the US Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) stunned the medical and lay community with its recommendation against routine prostate-specific antigen tests or, PSA screenings, for prostate cancer. This screening can detect high levels of PSA that may indicate the presence of prostate cancer. The Task Force gave PSA screening a grade of “D” primarily based on the results of the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovary (PCLO) trial, reported in 2009, which showed no difference in prostate cancer incidence or mortality between the screening and control groups after 7 years. Since this seminal declaration, screening has decreased from 33% to 18.7% in men aged 55-69 years, the age range generally thought to be most critical in identifying and treating the second-leading cause of cancer death in men.
