Screening Recommendations

The American Cancer Society recommends that men over the age of 50 have a conversation with their physicians about receiving yearly screening for prostate cancer.

Men should always consult their doctors before being screened, as well as after receiving the results of a screening test to understand the results in context of their own medical history.

The most common screening tests are the PSA test and the Digital Rectal Exam.
