PSA test advice sparks debate
May 22, 2012 (WLS) -- Health experts say men should ask their doctors for the PSA prostate cancer screening test if they are uncomfortable not being monitored.
On Tuesday, a U.S. advisory panel said routine PSA screening provides no health benefit for healthy men and does more harm than good. But that recommendation has been met with much debate.
There's also concerns that some insurance companies will cut off coverage of the PSA test having a major impact on those who can't afford to pay for it.
Some doctors say high-risk populations, such as older African American and Hispanic men, should be screened.
