Prostate Cancer: Second Most Common Form of Cancer in Men

Prostate CancerProstate Cancer is the second most common form of cancer in men. It is rare for a man to have this problem before the age of 40. Men with prostate cancer often show high levels of a substance called prostate specific antigen (PSA). Cancer, however is not the only reason one’s PSA can be high (Prostatitis can be another reason).

Since the PSA test has become more common, prostate cancer is usually found before any symptoms are present. If one starts to show symptoms of prostate cancer one would possibly experience the following:

-Problems passing urine
-low back pain
Pain with ejaculation

Yearly check ups are always a good idea, if you are a man don’t forget to get a PSA done and be proactive about your health.
