Yeah, that's been coming for a while. See, as the govt takes over more and more of the cost of treatment, the govt has a vested financial interest in not finding any cancer. If you don't look, you can't find it. This is why the 5 year survivability rate for PCa in the US is 90% and the UK rate is only 50%.

The regular PSA test found mine just find. Got the prostate cut out and now I have to have an extremely sensitive PSA test done every 4 months. So long as they get an "undetectable" result, I'm good. Once PSA starts turning up again, the cancer's back.
Unfortunately, you are exactly right. First they did that with mammograms, then it was PAP smears. Changing the guidelines, saying women dont need them as frequently, etc. Now they're hitting the men's healthcare. It's going to keep getting worse, but not enough people realize what's going on and probably won't until it's too late. Our system's not perfect but you won't get better care anywhere else. At least for now. Good luck to you.
