Prostate Health
The diagnosis of cancer is confirmed only by a biopsy.

What can you do to protect yourself?

Annual PSA test and regular prostate therapy also known as prostate milking will prevent you from prostate cancer. This therapy can be an effective treatment for chronic prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It helps drain the highly painful build up of seminal fluid in men with a chronically inflamed prostate. While beneficial for some individuals, prostate milking is NOT advisable for men with acute prostatitis as prostate milking may allow the prostate infection to spread to other parts of the body.

What are some other prostate cancer evaluation procedures?

If the DRE or PSA are unusual, your physician may repeat the tests or request an ultrasound and other procedures. These evaluation tools may include:


  • Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) - a test using sound wave echoes to create an image of the prostate gland to visually inspect for abnormal conditions such as gland enlargement, nodules, penetration of tumor through capsule of the gland, and/or invasion of seminal vesicles; may also be used for guidance of needle biopsies of the prostate gland and/or guiding the nitrogen probes in cryosurgery.
What are the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer?

There are usually no specific signs or symptoms of early prostate cancer - which is why prostate screening is so important. An annual physical examination, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, and digital rectal exam (DRE) provide the best chance of identifying prostate cancer in its earliest stages.

The following are the most common symptoms of prostate cancer. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

Diagnostic and Evaluation Procedures


In addition to an annual physical examination that includes blood, urine, and possibly other laboratory tests, the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society suggest consulting your physician about these recommendations for the evaluation of the prostate gland:

  • DRE (digital rectal examinations)
As recommended by your physician, DREs are usually conducted annually for men over the age of 50. Men in high-risk groups, such as African-Americans, or those with a strong family history of prostate cancer should consult their physicians about being tested at a younger age.Read More
What are risk factors for prostate cancer?

In general, all men are at risk for prostate cancer. However, there are specific risk factors that increase the likelihood that certain men will develop the disease, including the following:
