Prostate can­cer is the fourth most com­mon cause of death in older men. What is prostate can­cer? All men should be con­cerned about prostate can­cer, par­tic­u­larly as they age. Symp­toms can in­clude: Uri­nat­ing in the mid­dle of the night, need­ing to uri­nate more fre­quently, and feel­ing like the blad­der doesn’t com­pletely empty and blood in the urine.

If you feel pain near pri­vate area risk fac­tors can de­velop, early screen­ing is es­pe­cially im­por­tant.

Don’t be shy, visit or see a doc­tor or nurse or seek med­i­cal help for your own good. Not ig­nor­ing symp­toms and be­ing aware that find­ing the dis­ease and treat­ing it early has very good out­comes are the two main things that we need to get men to be aware of and to ad­dress it.

The ear­lier the prostate can­cer is caught — be­fore symp­toms ap­pear — the bet­ter the chances for re­cov­ery.
