Consider a PSA test

If you’re a candidate, think about getting a prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. Although it’s not perfect (prostate cancer isn’t the only reason PSA levels can rise), this blood test can catch prostate cancer early. Keep in mind that some prostate tumors grow so slowly that they may never be life-threatening; your doctor may recommend watchful waiting rather than immediate treatment.
