Are you a man older than 40-55 years of age? Most urologists talk about benefits and risks of Prostate Cancer screening with men older than 40-55 years of age depending on the personal history.

 In 2012, there were an estimated 2,795,592 men living with prostate cancer in the United States. The good news is overall 5 year survival between 2005 and 2011 was 98.9% in the United states. It was 100% for localized disease and even 28.2% for widespread disease. It was around 73.4% in year 2000 in Europe. This data shows more and more people are diagnosed with localized disease and modern treatments are saving lives.

Prostate cancer is the most common noncutaneous cancer in men and was accounted for over a quarter (27%) of new cancer cases in men during 2012. In fact, 1 out of 6-7 men gets prostate cancer during his life. Prostate cancer also contributes significantly in cancer specific death rate. Statistics show that prostate cancer is the 2nd and 3rd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in US and Canada.On January 1, 2009, in the United States there were approximately 2,496,784 men alive who had a history of prostate cancer.  241,740 and 26,500 men were estimated to be diagnosed with prostate cancer in US and Canada in 2012 alone and 28,170 and 4,000 were estimated to die because of  this disease in these countries respectively. Fortunately,If diagnosed early, prostate cancer can be treated effectively.

Prostate Cancer screening can potentially save lives. Localized Prostate Cancer is only picked up by screening. No symptoms yet. Look at the numbers in the figure. Most urologists talk about benefits and risks of Prostate Cancer screening with men older than 40-55 years of age depending on the personal history.We might discuss Prostate Cancer Screening at age 40 with an African American man with a Family History of Prostate Cancer. On the other hand, we would discuss it later with a white man with no Family History of the disease. Usually, no routine screening after age 70.
