Did You Know?

The Pap test does not detect ovarian cancer. It determines cancer of the cervix.

PROSTATE CANCER

Awareness Month Prostate cancer has no symptoms in the early stages - that’s why screening is critical to early detection. Symptoms should be reported to your doctor, who will then determine if you need to see a urologist. Any change in the quality or quantity of semen, pain on ejaculation, loss of potency or libido should be reported to your primary care doctor. It is also good to report frequent urination at night, difficulty starting or incomplete urinating. Risk of prostate cancer increases with age. Men with a father or brother with prostate cancer are 2x as likely to get the disease. Vietnam and Korean Vets exposed to Agent Orange and obese men are at increased risk. Prostate Cancer screening consists of two examinations: •A blood test •A physical exam

Annual screening should start at 45. Men with 1 or more risk factors should start annual screening at 40. Non-cancerous prostate conditions, such as an enlarged prostate or prostatitis are common. Most men suffer from some prostate enlargement as they grow older.
