The NHPCC urges all men become knowledgeable about prostate health. Prostate cancer is a serious health risk for men, afflicting one in six. The earlier prostate cancer is diagnosed the better the chances for successful treatment.
The NHPCC urges NH men between the ages of 45-75 to have a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test as well as a digital rectal exam (DRE), after being adequately informed of the risks and benefits of the PSA by their primary care physician (PCP) or other medical professional. Although the PSA test has its limitations, with both false positives and false negatives, today the PSA is the best test available for the early diagnosis of prostate cancer.
