The test in question is the PSA (for prostate specific antigen) and Wooden, a 68-year-old African American man living near Washington, DC, had been getting it done every year. “My doctor had been comparing my PSA levels from year to year,” he says. “After one of my physicals he calls and tells me that the levels had gone up since the year before, and he referred me to a urologist.” The urologist ran some tests, took several small tissue samples, and found seven cancerous tumors.
