A primary care physician was named in a lawsuit after one of his patients claimed that his PSA prostate testing was conducted negligently. Five years prior, the primary care physician had recommended PSA testing to his patient. The core was well below the accepted cutoff line, and the patient was not tested again until this past year. His PSA results had risen by one point and was half a point away from the guideline limit to order a prostate biopsy, but the patient’s doctor allegedly considered a digital rectal exam to be unnecessary. The patient ultimately consulted a urologist later that same year and was diagnosed with cancer; he promptly claimed that his physician had been negligent in his cancer screening process.
