Even though it’s one of the most preventable, colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. The American Cancer Society recommends that men and women should have a screening for colon cancer starting at age 50. Having a colonoscopy is the gold standard for detecting and treating colon cancer in its early and most curable stage.
Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests
Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 191,930 new cases of prostate cancer would be diagnosed in 2020, and it would lead to about 33,330 deaths. About one in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
The PSA test is a blood test used primarily to screen for prostate cancer. The test measures the amount of prostate-specific antigens – a protein produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate – in the blood.
