In May 2013, the AUA released new guidelines supporting routine use of the PSA test in healthy men aged 55-69 years who are at average risk for prostate cancer and asymptomatic. The AUA recommends that men consult their physician about the risks and benefits before undergoing PSA testing. The AUA guidelines do not recommend testing in men aged 40 years or younger, in men aged 40-54 years who are at average risk, in men aged 70 years or older, or in men with a life expectancy of less than 10-15 years.
