Prostate Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, men age 50 or older should be offered a digital rectal exam (DRE) and a blood test to check the level of prostate specific antigen (PSA). African-American men and men with a family history of prostate cancer should be examined beginning at 45.

Risk Factors

  • Age: The chance of getting prostate cancer goes up as men age. About two-thirds of prostate cancers are found in men over age 65
  • Race: Prostate cancer is more common among African-American men and Jamaican men of African heritage than in white men
  • Family history: Men with a father or brother with prostate cancer are more likely to get it themselves

If you are diagnosed with cancer, you should discuss your treatment options with a radiation oncologist, a cancer doctor who specializes in treating disease with radiation therapy, and a urologist, a surgeon who specializes in the urinary tract. Options for dealing with prostate cancer include:

  • Surgery
  • External beam radiation therapy
  • Prostate brachytherapy
  • Hormone therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Cryosurgery

Sometimes a combination of treatments is best for your cancer, such as surgery followed by external beam radiation, or external beam radiation therapy with hormone therapy. Some men can safely postpone treatment and watch it closely until treatment is needed. This is called watchful waiting.
