It’s time to step up to the plate
And talk about prostate cancer screening
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for men. Early detection can help you survive it. Your first step is talking with your doctor about your risk factors and understanding your screening options.
Have the talk, starting at:
- Age 50 for men with average risk factors
- Age 45 for men at high risk, including African-Americans and men with a close relative (father, brother, son) who had prostate cancer younger than age 65
- Age 40 for men at higher risk, including men with more than one close relative who had prostate cancer at an early age
Round the bases for your health! Make healthy lifestyle choices, know your family history of prostate cancer, talk with your doctor and see if screening is right for you.
