Wednesday, July 11, 2012 - 7:45am

Valley doctor's don't agree with a new federal study on the Prostate Specific Antigen or more commonly known as PSA test that helps identify prostate cancer in men. The study says the test isn't helping enough men and that many men are being over treated, but Dr. Alexander Feigl from the Doctor's Hospital at Renaissance feels otherwise, "For this federal task force to advise Americans not to worry about PSA's is just kind of difficult to comprehend." Dr. Feigl says because of PSA testing prostate cancer deaths have dropped 40% in the last 20 years and he recommends men over 50 still get a PSA test yearly along with a doctor's exam.
