More than 2 million men in the United States are prostate cancer survivors. It is important to talk to your doctor about your risk factors and prostate cancer screenings.Many doctors recommend men receive an annual blood test called a Prostate-Specific Antigen, which tests for a substance made by the prostate. Another screening is a Digital Rectal Exam, which allows a physician to feel for bumps or hard areas on the prostate.If you are diagnosed with prostate cancer, Centegra Health System offers state-of-the-art robotic surgery to treat this disease.
