Prostate cancer screening

Prostate cancer screening

What is prostate cancer screening?

Prostate cancer screening is a preventive examination for men in which the prostate is examined to detect localised, rapidly growing tumours without signs of disease. This is done by palpation, but a blood test (PSA test) may also be useful. As prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, you should find out about it early.

Who should have prostate cancer screening and at what time interval?

All men over the age of 45 who have statutory health insurance can have an annual prostate examination for early cancer detection. You can easily have this examination at one of our Avi Medical practices.

What all is included in a prostate cancer screening?

First, your individual risk of disease is determined in a consultation. This is followed by a rectal examination, during which your prostate is palpated through the rectum. The examination looks for lumps or hardening, which could indicate cancer. The examination does not take long - although it can be a little uncomfortable, it is not usually painful.

In addition, the PSA value (prostate specific antigen) can be determined by a blood test. This is a protein that is produced by the prostate glands. Since cancer cells produce a significantly higher amount of this enzyme, an elevated value can indicate a cancerous disease. However, since it can also be elevated due to other influencing factors (e.g. sport, inflammation,...), the result must be assessed with caution. Whether a tissue examination of the prostate is necessary must be discussed in detail with a urologist, if necessary. There are many advantages and disadvantages of this screening examination, so you should always inform yourself well beforehand.

What should I do?

You are welcome to make an appointment at one of our Avi Medical practices. Together with one of our doctors, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various screening options. With the influence of your individual risk profile, we will find the best screening for you.
