Did Your Doctor See The Warning Signs Of Prostate Cancer?
Under current professional guidelines, men should be screened for prostate cancer annually after the age of 45 or 50, or if they have any warning signs of cancer.
These warning signs include frequent urination, difficult urination and pain in the prostate region. If a patient has any of these symptoms, his doctor should order a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test and follow up any positive results with a biopsy or other test.
