The time to get screened is now. It’s an important first step in making sure that you and your doctor are up-to-date on your prostate health. In fact, the sooner the better, because if it turns out it is prostate cancer, and the earlier it’s detected, the more options you have for treatment. For more information, see our blog here.

WHO’S AT RISK?

WHO’S AT RISK?

The Center for Disease Control says all men are at risk for prostate cancer, but identified certain groups who are at a higher risk…

African-Americans More likely to get prostate cancer than other men. Twice as likely to die from it than white men. Get it at a younger age, and have more advanced disease when diagnosed.

Family History of Prostate Cancer Men who have a father, son or brother who have had it. Those with three or more from this first-degree group of relatives on the same side may have a type caused by genetic changes that are inherited.

Older Men The older a man is, the greater the chance of getting prostate cancer.

BRCA History The Prostate Cancer Foundation also advised that those with a family history of the BRCA gene mutation should be aware that in addition to breast cancer, this mutation has also been associated with higher risk for prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer screening is as easy as a simple blood test and a quick prostate exam. By just doing those two things, a man can get the reassurance he has been properly screened for prostate cancer. Early detection provides men with a variety of cutting edge options for treatment that provide for long term, cancer-free survival.
