Screening should take place at age 50 for men who are at average risk of prostate cancer.
Screening should take place starting at age 45 for men at high risk of developing prostate cancer. This includes African Americans and men who have a first-degree relative (father, brother, or son) diagnosed with prostate cancer at an early age (younger than age 65).
Screening should take place at age 40 for men at even higher risk (those with more than one first-degree relative who had prostate cancer at an early age).
The prostate screening consists of a Digital Rectal Exam and a PSA (blood draw.)
