To the Editor: When I looked at the cover of the 5 April issue of the MJA, I feared finding another article focused on discrediting the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. Instead, I congratulate the authors, and the Journal, for presenting one of the rare balanced articles on this topic.1 Denham and colleagues called for an end to taking sides in the debate over PSA testing, and focused instead on helpful guidance.
