On September 23, 2013, Senator Jeff B. Sessions (R-AL) introduced a new Senate resolution, S. Res. 251, calling for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) to reconsider its 2012 recommendations against prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing for prostate cancer. S. Res. 251 urges the USPSTF to consult and engage with urologists and oncologists in re-evaluating its recommendations, and to identify key areas of research into methods of diagnosing – and treating – prostate cancer. The AUA is working as a partner with ZERO to promote this resolution to lawmakers.
