Age When Prostate Cancer Appear
How high is your risk of developing prostate cancer? Sheldon Marks, MD, expains the role age plays.
Most men are diagnosed with prostate cancer late in life, meaning 60, 70s, 80s, now even 90s. There are certain types of cancer in the prostate that can actually start in men in their 40s and 50s, and because of that, that’s why we like to be evaluated early and be sure we’re not missing those. Those are the ones where we can impact on a man’s quality of life and life span with early diagnosis and early intervention.
