The National Alliance of State Prostate Cancer Coalitions (NASPCC) recommends a baseline prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test and digital rectal exam (DRE) beginning at age 40 (at 35 if high risk, including African-America Men or men with a certain or indeterminate family history of prostate cancer), and then periodically depending on those results.  You should know and keep tract of all your PSA measurements and ANY CHANGE IN PSA should be discussed with your doctor.

The Arizona Prostate Cancer Coalition is here to help you navigate through the jargon and maze of treatment options.  Check out our services page for links to support groups, upcoming events and more!
