Video Prostate Screening: CANSA Says Don’t Fear the Finger
CANSA raises awareness of prostate cancer, the most common male cancer globally and locally and showing significant increases. According to the National Cancer Registry, South African men have a 1:17 risk for being diagnosed in their lifetime. International and local research indicates that the risk for aggressive prostate cancer is higher in black men.
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood tests are available at CANSA Care Centres countrywide to help detect prostate abnormalities early. CANSA advises men to talk with a doctor or the local health facility about screening tests, beginning at 40 for men with a first-degree relative diagnosed at an early age and at 45 for all other men. The PSA blood tests in combination with a digital rectal examination (DRE) are optimal for screening for prostate cancer. #CANSAscreening
