Survival for men
11 November, 2017, 12:00 am
With prostate cancer, there has been a vigorous debate among ourselves about who should be tested.
I believe screening too many people leads to unnecessary treatment, too few and you miss cancers that could have been stopped.
I believe men are not always good at taking care of themselves and even if they know they have a health problem they often don’t want to talk about it.
It may sound odd, but I urge all men, ask your doctor that a rectal exam be performed.
And all men should know the risk for developing prostate cancer.
