Prostate Cancer

You may have difficulty urinating or show no symptoms at all. It’s why a simply visit to your doctor is so important. An early diagnosis of prostate cancer save times and money by avoiding costly treatments, and may also save your life.

Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer among men in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. On average, one in seven men will be diagnosed with it during their lifetime. If caught early, most men diagnosed with prostate cancer will not die from the disease.

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network recommends that men speak to their physician to decide whether to screen for prostate cancer through either a baseline PSA blood test and/or digital rectal exam beginning at age 45. In some cases, screening may not be recommended.
