30 years experience in Urology
Age 40: The american urological association recommends prostate cancer screening for men age 40 and older. The interpretation of the results as well as the recommended follow-up are effected by many things including patient age, medical status, prior psa levels (if available), prior biopps biopsy results (if available), race, and family history.
