Screening behaviors of Afro-Caribbean men living in New York

Gonzalez et al. have reported that men of Afro-Caribbean ethnicity living in Brooklyn, New York, are just as likely as white men to undergo initial PSA screening but they are much less likely to maintain annual screening. The authors comment on the importance of comprehensive discussion and annual examinations and the role of [primary care] physicians in ensuring PSA screening continuity. It would be interesting to know whether similar behavior patterns were evident in the Caribbean itself.
