A Common Male Cancer
Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer found in American men. A majority of men with prostate cancer are over the age of 65. The American Cancer Society recommends that after the age of 50, men consider an annual PSA blood screening and digital rectal examination. For men with a family history of prostate cancer, screening should be considered at age 45.
