For the record

August 10, 2009

Prostate cancer: An article in the July 3, 2006, Health section incorrectly stated that the American Cancer Society and the American Urological Assn. recommend a rectal exam and a prostate specific antigen, or PSA, blood test every year for men older than 50, and five to 10 years sooner for African Americans and men with a family history of the disease. The groups do not recommend routine annual screening, instead saying that the tests should be discussed between patient and physician. The error was only recently brought to editors' attention.
