Early detection is key in prostate cancer
- Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among American men.
- Approximately 200,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year in the U.S., but the disease is treatable.
- Prostate cancer is very slow growing, so early detection is key.
- Generally affecting older men, having a family history puts men at high risk.
- The prostate is a small gland found only in men located below the bladder.
- Testing for prostate cancer should begin at age 50, or earlier with family history.
