Action Alert: FORCE Responds to USPSTF Guideline Changes for PSA Screening

The United States Preventive Services Task Force recently issued a draft recommending against PSA screening for men of any age and risk status. Although the guidelines were not written specifically for men with BRCA mutations, FORCE is concerned that the proposed screening guideline changes may have serious negative health implications, lead to confusion, and make it more difficult for high-risk men to get insurance reimbursement for PSA screening. The USPSTF is accepting public commentary on these draft guidelines until November 8, 2011. Visit the FORCE website and learn how you can take action on behalf of high-risk men.
