Patient : I'm a 53 year old male in fairly good health. I get an annual physical with standard blood work and she always orders a PSA (which has been normal), but doesn't physically check me. Should this be something I should ask for or should I not worry about it. What checks or preventive tests should I be getting at my age. The whole physical takes 10-15 minutes and seems a little fast.
