Play
Michael J. Whalen, MD, discusses the newly updated prostate screening guidelines set forth by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force. The new recommendations advise a shared decision making process between patients and their providers, based on developments in screening and improved knowledge of the slow-growing nature of prostate cancer.

Dr. Whalen also explains why the traditional methods of screening, diagnosing and treating prostate cancer were reevaluated, particularly in terms of preserving men's quality of life.
