It is pretty hard to take a broad brush approach like this and not
over-simplify. PSA - probably no; mammograms - unclear; colonoscopy -
probably should. (ps - don't have to use Versed - I've done mine with no
sedation)
Same with Ezekial - lot of >75 pretty productive. I strongly suspect he
will change his mind when he hits 74 :)
