Experts recommend that men receive annual screening for prostate cancer after age 40. I say, heck, start when you're 35. According to the American Cancer Society:
About 1 man in 6 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime ... Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 35 will die of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer accounts for about 10% of cancer-related deaths in men.
If you catch it early enough, your chances of being cured are excellent. If you don't catch it early ... well, that's why I write these reminders.
Please. If you're over 35, get checked. Please.
