Prostate and colon cancer are some of the most common forms of cancer. The best and most effective way to address these cancers is through early and effective diagnosis. When these forms of cancer are addressed before their initial stages, they can often be effectively treated. When they are not, they can become fatal.
It is important to realize that prostate cancer can be effectively screened through standards of care. Men should be screened every year after the age of 45 or if they show any cancer warning signs. In the case of prostate cancer, these signs may include frequent urination, difficult urination and pain in the prostate region. If any of these symptoms are present, the doctor should order a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test and properly investigate results.
In the case of colon cancer, blood in the stool or changes in bowel habits will often signal the need for the appropriate testing methods. The medical consensus recommends a colonoscopy at age 50 and repeated screening at regular intervals. This is especially true with individuals who have a family or personal history of the disease.
