New guide to PSA testing

The National Health and Medical Research Council has released a new resource to provide health professionals with balanced and up to date information about the PSA test.

The resource titled PSA Testing for Prostate Cancer in Asymptomatic Men: Information for Practitioners examines the potential benefits and harms of subsequent follow-up investigations and treatments of PSA testing.

The guide is designed to assist general practitioners to provide consistent, evidence-based advice to asymptomatic men who are considering undergoing a PSA test. It does not make recommendations for or against PSA testing.

The guide can be downloaded from http://www.nhmrc.gov.au/guidelines/publications/men4
