Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer diagnosed and cause of death due to cancer in Wisconsin men. In fact, 1 in 6 men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. It continues to be crucial to speak with your doctor about proper prostate cancer screenings, such as a PSA or DRE.
ThedaCare recommends men at average risk, age 55-69, have annual discussions with their providers about whether screening is the right decision for them. A frank discussion will help you make a health care decision about prostate cancer screenings.
