This summary sheet helps GPs give clear and balanced information to asymptomatic men who ask about prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing.
The PSA test is available free to any well man aged 50 and over who requests it.
GPs should not proactively raise the issue of PSA testing with asymptomatic men.
GPs should use their clinical judgement to manage symptomatic men and those aged under 50 who are considered to have higher risk for prostate cancer.
