Prostate Cancer Awareness Week
Too many men I know and love have died of prostate cancer and its complications - my father, my grandfather, the fathers and grandfathers of friends. In Canada and US, Cancer Societies are observing Prostate Cancer Awareness Week, urging men to take control of their health before cancer takes control of their prostate gland.
- Men over 50 should have a digital rectal exam and a PSA (prostate specific antigen) test
- Men with African heritage/genetic background should have the same done at a younger age due to increased risk
