Screening Guidelines

  • According to the American Cancer Society, men should talk with their doctor about when to begin screening for prostate cancer.
  • For those with a higher risk - those with more than one first-degree relative (father or brother) who had prostate cancer at an early age - the discussion should start at age 40.
  • For those with a moderately high risk - including African-Americans and men with a first-degree relative diagnosed younger than age 65 - the discussion should start at age 45.
  • For those with average risk and expected to live at least 10 more years - the discussion should start at age 50.
  • If you decide to be tested, you should get a PSA blood test with or without a rectal exam. How often you're tested will depend on your PSA level.
