The Importance of Regular Prostate Screening
In early prostate cancer there are no symptoms. A simple detection method is the prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test. Any healthy man under the age of 65 can benefit from early prostate cancer detection. In general, men over 50 years of age should be screened annually; men with a family history of prostate cancer and African Americans should start screening earlier, generally at 40 years.
