Prostate cancer is without a doubt a disease epidemic of the modern age. Although first described histologically only in 1853, as a single case report, today, it is actually the most common male cancer in the western world today and a major cause of morbidity and mortality.
There is a strong public perception that urinary symptoms is one of the key indicators of prostate cancer. If rates of earlier diagnosis are to improve, people need to be aware that prostate cancer is a silent disease especially in the curable stages, and men should come forward for testing regardless of whether or not they have symptoms.
Get your prostate checked from 45 if you are in a high-risk group, and from 50 if not.
Awareness is key, early diagnosis saves lives!
