Richard Knox of NPR delivers a clear piece of explanatory journalism in a story about whether rising PSA scores – so-called “PSA velocity” – really means a man must have a biopsy. (Disclosure: Knox interviews Dr. Michael Barry, president of the Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making, which supports my HealthNewsReview.org project.)

The radio version appears below:

And in the Los Angeles Times, Chris Woolston reports, “The Debate Over Prostate Cancer Tests.”

Sort of a companion piece to Christie Aschwanden’s piece in the Times about the continuing mammography debate.
