GOVERNMENT PANELS WANTS TO TAKE CANCER DETECTING PSA TEST AWAY!!

The USPSTF is a group of 16 primary care specialists (GPs, pediatricians, internal medicine and ob-gyn) in a government sponsored committee.  A couple of years ago they recommended stopping mammograms on women, there was such a ruckus that they softened their recommendation. They have just recommended that no men of any age have the PSA.  I am rushing through the three articles above to be published in Missouri Medicine medical journal.  We physicians and patients need to raise a ruckus.

May I request that you each go to the USPSTF website And as patients protest against this recommendation. If its adopted Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies will stop paying for the PSA test.

Let any other people you know interested know and ask them to go on line also. This is link  http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/uspstf_form3/    Comments have to be made before November 8th, 2011

Thanks
