In 2010, the ACS recommended that men make an informed decision about whether to be screened for prostate cancer. The decision should be based on a discussion with their healthcare provider about the uncertainties, risks, and potential benefits of screening. The ACS advises that if the PSA level is < 2.5 ng/mL, retesting may need to be done only every 2 years. Men whose PSA level is ≥ 2.5 ng/mL should have annual testing.
