What Is It?

Here it is vital to understand that prostate cancer is very slow-growing and generally does not cause any early symptoms. Thus, the only way to detect prostate cancer early enough is with the help of diagnostic tests.

Should I Be Concerned?

Prostate cancer is among the most common cancers diagnosed in older men and is one of the top 4 common cancers in Singapore. Fortunately, it is not the leading cause of death. If diagnosed in a timely manner, 90% of prostate cancers are curable. This only highlights the importance of cancer screening.

How Can I Treat It?

One must understand that prostate cancer has no specific signs and symptoms. Blood tests and digital rectal exams can help estimate the risk, but they do not confirm or in some cases exclude prostate cancer. Hence, a prostate biopsy is the only confirmatory test available. Since prostate cancer is so challenging to diagnose in its early stages, it only highlights the importance of frequent cancer screening in men.
