The web site for comments about the PSA test to the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is finally back in service and ready for your comments. Last night their site collapsed (I am hoping as a result of the overwhelming number of comments).
The site is back up and taking comments. Make sure that you deliver your message and ask your family and friends to post their concerns. Members of the breast cancer lobby over whelmed the Task Force who then changed their recommendations. A “D” grade for PSA tests will make them virtually unavailable to men until they become metastatic and symptomatic.
