Health Care System Factors for Prostate Cancer Screening

Health Care System Factors

Since 2018, the USPSTF^1^ has recommended that, for men aged 55 to 69 years, the decision to undergo periodic prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-based screening for prostate cancer should be an individual one and that, before deciding whether to be screened, men should have an opportunity to discuss the potential benefits and harms of screening with their clinician and to incorporate their values and preferences in the decision. 1.
