Study probes how to tell elderly patients not to bother with cancer screening
Over the past decades, the idea that all adults should get regularly screened for cancer -- with mammograms, colonoscopies and prostate specific antigen blood tests -- has been conveyed to the public time after time. But current clinical guidelines recommend against screening many older adults, such as those with less than 10 years' life expectancy. For doctors, talking to a patient about the idea that they've 'aged out' of cancer screening can be a challenging conversation. (2019-07-02)
