The new research has reignited debate over screening for prostate cancer through prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests.
Nevertheless, the new data immediately reignited long-running arguments over the use of screening through prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, tests.

Consequently, more than half of those men with an elevated prostate-specific antigen do not actually have cancer, according to Hoffman.
