As men become older, it is is not uncommon to have symptoms related to problems with the prostate. Many men complain of having to urinate much more often. While there are problems with the prostate that are not cancer, this blog focuses on when it is cancer.
Let's start by reminding all men to see their doctor on a regular basis. Although having your prostate checked is not the most comfortable thing in the world, it is very important. The doctor can feel if your prostate in enlarged.
If you have blood in your urine, that can be a sign of cancer.
Common bloods tests called a PSA test can be used to detect a man's risk of prostate cancer.
The key to a better outcome is to detect the cancer early before it spreads.
Treatment can include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
In some cases we have handled, the doctor does not do a PSA test or fails to tell the patient that the test was not normal. Sometimes, there is a failure to do a proper exam of the prostate.
