Be Safe with Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men, after skin cancer.  Each year, about 160-thousand men are diagnosed and there are more than 26-thousand deaths.               

Dr. Edward Schaeffer, the urology chief at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago, says black men and those with family histories of the disease are most at risk. 

Men should talk to their doctors about testing for prostate cancer when they're 50, unless they're at high risk.                      

Schaeffer recommends that a man talk to his doctor about testing, since 85-percent of prostate cancers are detected through bloodwork or a rectal exam.
