Early detection is key in prostate cancer

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.
