PSA: Why 1.5 is the New 4

Summary:

E. David Crawford, MD, argues for using PSA levels of 1.5 ng/mL as the cutoff for routine screening in primary care. He emphasizes the importance of informed decision making in the event of abnormal results, reducing unnecessary biopsies and overdiagnosis, and relying more on genomic markers for detecting significant cancers.
