Prostate Cancer Screenings & Exams

Men over the age of 50 or those with a family history of prostate cancer should talk to their doctor about screening for prostate cancer.

A doctor will administer a patient assessment, which may include a digital rectal exam and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood tests. While these tests may indicate a problem with the prostate, further testing to detect cancer also many include transrectal ultrasound and transrectal biopsy.
