Prostate Cancer Screening Directory
Prostate cancer screening is recommended for men over 50, even if they have had no symptoms. The test used is called a PSA test. There are pros and cons to testing with no symptoms, so talk to your doctor about your concerns. Men over 75 should typically not be screened. Just because you may show a certain result on the PSA test doesn't mean you have cancer. A biopsy will be needed to further test for prostate cancer.
