PSA screening in Black men start at age 45

Black men should consider prostate cancer screening at 45 years, rather than the recommended 55 years of age, according to a recent study led by researchers from University of Washington Medicine and Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center.

“We found that screening at age 45 and testing every year until age 70, decreased deaths from prostate cancer compared to current screening practices without increasing the number of over-detected prostate cancer case,” said Dr. Yaw Nyame, a urologic oncologist at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
