Prostate Cancer

About Your Care and Condition

Prostate cancer detected using a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test and digital examination is almost always treatable. In fact, PSA screening may lead to over-detection and over-treatment. For this reason, most medical societies now agree prostate cancer screenings should not occur without an informed decision-making process. 

There are commonly no associated symptoms for prostate cancer, but occasionally men present with difficulty urinating or pain in their bones.
