Prostate cancer is the most common cancer and the second-leading cause of cancer death in men in the United States. Approximately 85 percent of prostate cancers are detected by simple blood work.
“We recommend active treatment for men,” said Dr. Schaeffer. “The best and most important step for individual men is to discuss rather or not they should get testing for prostate cancer with their doctor. It’s a personal decision.”
