The National Alliance of State Prostate Cancer Coalitions (NASPCC) is a network of state coalitions, and groups and individuals interested in forming state coalitions. We support one another and the men and families of our states by identifying, developing, and advocating for policies that support high quality benchmarks such as patient education and multidisciplinary care.
NASPCC recommends informed decision-making on prostate cancer testing and supports the early detection of potentially lethal prostate cancer. NASPCC supports 2014 Early Detection Guidelines published by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) that suggest baseline PSA testing of men beginning in their 40's, complemented by a DRE. Testing at earlier ages is specifically important for men in higher risk categories, such as African-American men and men with a family history of prostate cancer. Subsequent testing depends on testing history and should be determined in collaboration with a physician.
