Screening and Early Detection
Screening and early detection saves lives. The American Urological Association recommends men get a baseline PSA, along with a physical exam of the prostate known as a digital rectal exam (DRE) at age 40.
Men 40 and over should talk with their doctor about their risk for prostate cancer and about what screening approach is best for them. Knowing your risk could help save your life.
To get the play-by-play on screening and the PSA test, download the Prostate Cancer Screening brochure.
Beat Prostate Cancer
Early stage prostate cancer offers many options for treatment and cure. Some men may be candidates for careful surveillance of their cancer instead of receiving immediate treatment. Talk with your doctor about the treatment plan that is best for you.
