1 IN 6

After skin cancer, the most diagnosed cancer in Arizona, and the second cause of cancer death in men.

Prostate cancer is twice as common and has more than twice the mortality rate in African-American men as it has in Caucasian men.

Men have a 1 in 6 chance of developing prostate cancer in their lifetime.

More than 4,000 Arizona men will be diagnosed this year alone. Over 600 of them will die from prostate cancer within the next twelve months. Sadly, an easy and simple 15-minute exam might have saved their lives.

Just 15 Minutes

Prostate cancer often develops without symptoms. Annually testing with PSA and DRE can lead to early detection and cancer confined to the prostate that has a significantly higher cure rate.

With early detection and treatment, prostate cancer is nearly 100% survivable.

Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) Test

The PSA test measures the blood level of PSA, a protein that is produced by the prostate gland. The higher a man’s PSA level, typically the more likely it is that he has prostate cancer.

Testicular Exam

Most doctors agree that checking a man’s testicles should be part of a general physical exam. The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends a testicular exam by a doctor as part of a routine cancer-related check-up.

Digital Rectal Examination (DRE)

A tumor in the prostate can often be felt as a hard lump. This may be done as part of a regular examination or to check on symptoms, such as a change in urination.

Testimonials

  • In March 2011, the Department of Revenue had a health screening and part of the screening was having the PSA blood test.  Three days later I received a phone call from the screening organization stating that my PSA had gone up to 5 and suggested that I contact my PCP... On June 16, I had the radical prostatectomy with the Da Vinci surgical machine and after 3-plus weeks off, I returned to work.

  • ...I made an appointment with “POP” to have my prostate cancer screening.  My PSA was low; however Dr. Chan found an abnormality. I went to see Dr. Brito who agreed with Dr. Chan's observation. Long story short, Dr. Chan probably saved my life by detecting this cancer in the very early stages. My surgery by the da Vinci Procedure was highly successful.

  • This was the best decision I could have ever made. The screening showed my PSA levels had doubled in less than a year... My physician suggested a biopsy which revealed that I had prostate cancer. I have since had surgery which resulted in very good prognosis. I encourage all men over 40 years of age and older to have yearly prostate screening...

  • The doctors said that my cancer was so advanced that it had probably been inside me for 3-5 years.  The scary part was that there were virtually NO symptoms.  Prostate cancer is practically 100 percent curable if caught early enough to be contained within the prostate.  Early detection through an annual prostate exam will save lives and since my diagnosis I’ve tried to spread the word...
