It's No Big Deal - Prostate Cancer Screening
This one-page handout educates men about tests for prostate cancer. It uses a brief conversation between a father and son to convey basic information about the importance of early testing for prostate cancer. It outlines prostate cancer testing with the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test and rectal exam, and recommends when men should talk with their doctors, with clarification for African American men, as well as men with a history of prostate cancer in their family. The document includes the American Cancer Society toll-free phone number for more information.
