Prostate cancer test may not be successful most of the time to detect the disease at its early stages as symptoms commonly occur when it’s too late for treatment. Health Aim asked Dr Harry Fisch of Cornell University about the facts that men and even women must know to reduce cancer risk. Dr Fisch, who is a Board certified urologist at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Medical College of Cornell University, said the greatest risk of prostate cancer is “being a man.” Many men across the world die of the disease that has been considered their second leading cause of cancer deaths.
Men with a family history of prostate cancer and those who are African-American are at highest risk of having a more aggressive form of the disease. Fisch said that men, especially those at high risk, must get tested in their 40s.
