I think Samadi is clearly stating he does not agree with some of the recommendations:
" Are you under age 40? The AUA says you should not be screened.
Dr. Samadi says:
"With blanket recommendations we run the risk of letting younger men fall through the cracks. Men under 40 need to be educated about
prostate cancer and given a clear understanding of how risk factors apply to their individual status. This is a critical time in a man's life for establishing a healthy lifestyle that optimizes disease prevention. It's also primetime for baselining a man's PSA level."
One can also read between the lines:
"David B. Samadi, MD, Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery and Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, was a key presenter at the meeting but not part of the new PSA recommendation."
"The earlier monitoring starts, the better."
I posted this same response in your original thread. A few responded that my good doctor was out for publicity. Call me insane, but his response makes a whole ot more sense than the actual guidelines to me.
