A simple blood test called a prostate specific antigen test and a digital rectal exam are currently the best screening methods available for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer screening is safe and painless and can detect prostate cancer early, when it is most treatable. Individuals most at risk for prostate cancer include:
- All men ages 55-69
- African-American men ages 40-69
- Men ages 40-69 who have risk factors such as a family history (father or brother who has had prostate cancer)
