    Normally Prostate Cancer can exist without having any symptoms, Still there are some patients may have symptoms of having to urinate frequently or slowly,  or have urinary burning or blockage or bleeding.

    Frequency:

    Rare: People with Age Below 40

    So it is better to go through the prostate examination consists of two parts, a digital rectal examination, (DRE), and a blood test, the PSA or, prostate specific antigen.

    You should be examined usually at age 50.  If you have a history of prostate cancer in you family you should do it at age 45.

    Age 40 should be mandatory for a PSA Baseline. Prostate Cancer isn't an old man's disease anymore. Men is their 30's are also at risk. For a reality check see Journey With Prostate Cancer on Facebook.
