Prostate cancer: In Health on July 3, 2006, an article incorrectly said that the American Cancer Society and the American Urological Assn. recommend a rectal exam and a prostate specific antigen, or PSA, blood test every year for men older than 50, and five to 10 years sooner for African Americans and men with a family history of the disease. In fact, the groups do not recommend routine annual screening; they say the tests should be discussed between patient and physician. The error was only recently brought to editors' attention.
