Cancer of the prostate can go undetected for years because there may be no symptoms. The only way to detect prostate cancer in its earliest and most curable stage is by getting a prostate cancer screening which consists of a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test. This test helped millions of men identify prostate cancer already and millions more need to become aware of the risks and treatment options. Participants are encouraged to schedule an appointment with their Primary Care Provider to review the results of the PSA blood test to determine if additional testing is recommended.
