Abstract

In 2012, the US Preventive Services Task Force recommended against prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening. Following the initial decrease in PSA screening rate, there appears to be no further decrease in screening rate from 2013 to 2015. In addition, the screening rate did not differ by age or race.
