5. Why are regular prostate check ups important?

Early prostate cancer has very symptoms, so it can only be found through routine screening. As men get older, especially over the age of 50, it is very important to be tested and to identify any abnormalities. Not all prostate problems are cancer, but prostate cancer is the most serious problem. Some prostate cancers are small and/or slow and do not progress beyond the prostate gland. Some are more aggressive and advanced. Treatment is more successful if it is begun when the cancer is still small and has not spread beyond the prostate gland.
