Cancer of the prostate gland is one of the most common cancers in men. Early diagnosis of prostate cancer, when it is confined to the gland and hasn't metastasised ensures timely treatment and increases chances of survival. Since a person with prostate cancer often presents with lower urinary tract symptoms, it is very often misdiagnosed as Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy and treated accordingly. Therefore routine screening for prostate cancer including prostate specific antigen and digital rectal examination is recommended in all men above 50 years and earlier still in those with risk factors and symptoms.
