Abstract

Study Type - Diagnostic (cohort) Level of Evidence 2b What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Although non-recommended PSA testing has been reported in men younger than 40 years of age, there are few recognized data on PSA in younger American men, particularly younger African-American men, to provide age- and race-specific references. Using data from an existing large study of young, male members of the US military, aged 28-36 years, the present study provides PSA reference distributions for young Caucasian-American men (median = 0.56, 95th percentile = 1.42, range:
