The National Alliance of State Prostate Cancer Coalitions supports the early detection of prostate cancer by recommending that, beginning at age 40, all men obtain a baseline PSA and have a digital rectal exam (DRE); and obtain a PSA and DRE on a regular basis as determined by your physician. For high-risk patients; including African-American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer, screening at an earlier age should be discussed with your physician.
The Delaware Prostate Cancer Coalition (DPCC) is committed to maintaining an environment that values and embraces diversity, equity and inclusion.
