Regular screening is key to early detection and treatment of prostate cancer, which is one of the most common types of cancer in men. By developing a long-lasting relationship with your urologist, we can ensure that you are screened often and maintain overall wellness. Fog City Urology specializes in male health issues or concerns.
We currently use two methods of screening for prostate cancer: the Digital Rectal Examination (DRE) and the Prostate-Specific Antigen blood test. Generally, these tests are performed on men between the ages of 40 and 60 who have shown signs of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer can be life threatening, and the urologists at Fog City know it’s a difficult diagnosis to receive. Our staff is skilled in early detection and prompt treatment of this disease. Often, the cancer can be eliminated with only minimal treatment, but the key is to screen often and be on the lookout for signs or symptoms, so it may be caught early in development.
