Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men. It accounts for 15% of all tumours diagnosed. Its appearance is linked to age, and it is more common in people aged over 60. With the appearance of the tumour marker Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), which can be detected in a blood test, the diagnosis of early-stage prostate cancer has increased considerably.

PSA is a protein made in the prostate, measured in blood tests, and its levels can change in three situations: when there is an abnormal growth in the prostate, when there is an infection, and when there is a tumour.
I would recommend that people over 50 take the tests.
