Early Detection Guidelines for High Risk Men

The Prostate Health Education Network (PHEN) has developed a statement on the role of PSA testing in the early detection of prostate cancer in high risk men.  These include African Americans, men with a significant family history of prostate cancer, men exposed to Agent Orange, and men with an above-average baseline PSA level taken in their 40s.

The Prostate Cancer Roundtable endorsed the PHEN statement at it’s end-of-year meeting on December 9, 2013.  To read the press release from that meeting, click here.
