Here are the top 10 reasons why it’s important to screen for prostate cancer:
Early detection: Screening can help detect prostate cancer early when it is most treatable and has the best chance of being cured.
High incidence: Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in the United States.
High mortality: Prostate cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in men in the United States.
Risk factors: Age, family history, and ethnicity are all risk factors for prostate cancer, making screening important for men who may be at higher risk.
No symptoms in early stages: Prostate cancer often has no symptoms in its early stages, making regular screening an important tool for detecting it early.
No definitive cause: The exact causes of prostate cancer are not well understood, making early detection through screening even more important.
Treatments are available: There are a variety of treatment options available for prostate cancer, but early detection is key for successful treatment.
Avoiding advanced stage: Screening can help detect prostate cancer before it reaches an advanced stage, which can be more difficult to treat.
Quality of life: Early detection and treatment can help improve quality of life for men with prostate cancer.
Peace of mind: Regular screening can provide peace of mind for men who are concerned about their risk for prostate cancer, and can help them take control of their health.
