Advice for zoomer men on the contentious issue of prostate cancer screening.

The American Society of Clinical Oncology says doctors should discuss the possible pros and cons of the tests only with men expected to live at least ten more years.

Then the men can decide for themselves if they’d like the screening.

The recommendation says doctors should discourage testing for men who aren’t expected to live that long.

For them, the risks will outweigh any possible benefit.
