Prostate Cancer - Prevention

There is no way to prevent prostate cancer. However, early detection can dramatically reduce the threat posed by the disease. The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends that all men over the age of forty have an annual rectal examination. The ACS also recommends an annual PSA test once a year for men over the age of fifty.

A low-fat diet may slow the progress of prostate cancer. The ACS recommends a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and fiber and low in red meat and saturated fats.
