It’s also important for women to encourage their fathers, brothers, husbands, sons and other loved ones to be tested.”

Many patients do not experience initial symptoms of prostate cancer, making it important for men who are aged 50 and older to have routine screenings for the disease. More than half, 65 percent, of men who are diag
