With the exception of skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men. Despite an estimated 161,000 new prostate cancer cases diagnosed each year, many men don’t understand their treatment options for the disease.

Why is prostate cancer testing so confusing?
If you’re a man wanting to learn more about prostate cancer testing, you’ve probably learned it is confusing. Although one in eight men will develop prostate caner in his lifetime, the testing and treatment recommendations can be confusing to patients and providers alike. This is tragic because early detection is key to prevent the disease from becoming larger or metastatic.
We spoke with Dr. Darshil Shah to discuss prostate cancer testing and ask questions about the disease.

It is estimated that there will be 161,000 new cases of prostate cancer in 2017. About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older, but it in can occur in younger men.
Despite how common prostate cancer is, few men can answer what the prostate’s function is or why prostate cancer is so common.
