Prostate cancer screening
The earlier cancer is found, the more successful cancer treatment can be. This makes prostate cancer screening important to a man's general health.
If a family member has had prostate cancer or if you are African American, we recommend starting annual prostate cancer screenings at age 40. For others, annual screening should begin at 45 to 50 years.
Contact your primary care provider about when you should be screened for prostate cancer.
