Summary of Recommendation


a Standard language associated with the grade I Statement is "The USPSTF concludes that the evidence is insufficient to recommend for or against routinely providing {the service}." For this specific recommendation, the USPSTF modified the language to indicate the lack of evidence that screening for a condition with a poorly defined natural history would improve health outcomes while there is evidence that interventions cause known harms.
