Prostate cancer is the second most prevalent men’s cancer behind skin cancer in the U.S. But because the cancer exhibits few early symptoms, it is typically diagnosed in later stages when prognosis can be poor.
Being aware of early symptoms and getting your PSA levels checked regularly are two ways that you can catch the disease earlier and begin treatments.
In this Novant Health video, we meet David Steele. He has a family history of prostate cancer so he routinely has his PSA levels checked. During his late 40s, Steele was lucky to catch his cancer early and is now cancer-free. Urologist Dr. Dan Watson explains how often men should get their PSA levels checked.
