The Prostate Cancer Center at Saint Joseph's is committed to screening as a method to continually increase prostate cancer survival. We follow the American Urological Association (AUA) Guidelines for Prostate Cancer Screening which recommends a baseline prostate-specific antigen blood test (PSA) along with a digital rectal exam (DRE) beginning at age 40. Following the initial screening, annual screenings should be done to track changes in the PSA level (and the prostate itself) which can be an indication of a problem. Please check our Web site often for information about free community screening events. All screenings for prostate cancer are done by appointment only and are for men between the age of 40 and 75 who have never been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
