Let's face it. The prostate wasn't designed for the dietary and psychological abuse it must suffer today.



Did you know that a man is 33% more likely to get prostate cancer
than a woman is to get breast cancer? It's true.
A husband, father, son, brother, grandfather, friend dies
every 19 minutes of every day from Prostate Cancer

Are you a male 40-75
or over 35 and African American
or your father or brother had Prostate Cancer?
Get tested! PSA 
and DRE*

Someone you know may be affected.
One in every seven men will get prostate cancer.

35% will be under the age of 65.
There will be over 248,530 men with a new case of prostate
cancer this year. Over 34,130 will die because
they didn't get an examination or didn't act soon enough.
Don't let it be said, "He was too afraid or embarrassed to get tested."
We cannot rest until we win the battle against Prostate Cancer.


Take the Risk Factor Test
Four Important Things to Remember before Getting Tested

1. Be sure that you're rested.
2. No sexual activity for 72 hours before the test.
3. Got a cold? Put it on hold.
4. Either have your PSA test before the DRE or delay taking a

PSA test for 48 hours AFTER you have had your DRE test.

* If you get a reading between zero and 1, get tested again in five year.
If the reading is between 1 and 2, get tested again in two years.
If the reading is between 2-4, get tested every year.
If the reading is over 4, consider additional tests like
PSA free, AMAS, ultrasound, x-rays, and more blood t
ests, then, maybe a biopsy. And, take this health opportunity to learn every thing you can about
prostate cancer! Call the PCA Coalition hotline with questions about prostate cancer:
