"Do I Need to get my Prostate Checked?"
Well, do I?
Good news if you're a woman - you don't.
Actually, good news if you're a man, too, probably. Increasingly we are being told – in newspapers (remember them?), on TV and Radio, websites, twitter, facebook, friends, family, coworkers – to see the doctor and get it tested.
You probably know why; a better question might be “why not?” Believe it or not, current thinking is that we should not be routinely screening men for prostate cancer, and there are a number of guidelines which have been produced to reflect this.
But it’s really common, and it might kill me, so why not check anyway?
