Black men should start PSA screening earlier

"Black men should start PSA screening earlier"

“When we are discussing early-stage prostate cancer, there are no early warning signs or symptoms,” says radiation oncologist Jerome M. Butler, MD, of North Carolina.

“Given that we know that African American males have a higher risk of prostate cancer, we believe that prostate cancer screening cannot be ignored.

For asymptomatic men of average risk, prostate screening should begin at ages 55 to 69. We believe that African American males should start earlier.”
