For prostate cancer, older men should consider test

On Feb. 15, I joined about 165,000 other men in the country who are diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Thankfully, my family physician had ordered a PSA test this year as part of my annual physical examination, and my urologist followed up with a biopsy.

I hadn’t received the PSA screening since 2012, and although I had annual prostate digital exams, my doctors hadn’t detected any abnormalities.
