Yakima Urology Associates form a new alliance with Yakima Memorial
See what Urologist say:
The American Urological Association (AUA) believes that the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, when used appropriately, provides clinicians with valuable information to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. Currently, there is not a comparable test or diagnostic available for this purpose.
In May 2012, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued final recommendations discouraging the use of the PSA test.
The AUA strongly believes that the USPSTF, in disparaging the PSA test before a newer diagnostic is more readily available, does a great disservice to American men and may cause more harm than good.
