Critique the use of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to diagnose prostate cancer.

You are seeing a husband and wife for routine yearly physicals. You want to discuss health promotion activities with them, including self breast exam (SBE) and mammography for the wife and prostate self exams for the husband. The wife states she is embarrassed to admit she has never done a breast self exam or had a mammogram and didn’t think they were useful anyway. The husband tells you he read in the magazine in your waiting room that blood tests to check for prostate cancer don’t need to be done anymore.
Critique the use of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to diagnose prostate cancer. Provide your evidenced-based recommendations to the husband for PSA testing. Provide at least one reference source that is different from your colleagues to help expand their knowledge.
References and citations should be no more than 5 years old and conform to the APA 6th edition.
