Should You Be Tested for Prostate Cancer?

Physicians recommend that all men “at risk” of getting prostate cancer receive an annual screening test. This is excellent advice, but just who is “at risk”? A man’s chances of getting prostate cancer increase as he gets older.

A man who has no family history of prostate cancer enters the “at risk” group when he turns 50. If a man knows that his father, uncles or brothers have had prostate cancer, then he must consider himself “at risk” once he turns 40. Both a man’s environment and a man’s behavior can increase his risk of getting prostate cancer.
