Did You Know? Detected early, prostate cancer is curable!
Prostate cancer must come out of the shadows. This disease is too often asymptomatic and surrounded by unfounded taboos. Men are still hesitant to ask for an annual screening test from their doctor (PSA blood test and digital rectal examination).
Simple and quick, screening can detect cancerous tumors at an early stage, which greatly improves the success rate of treatments.
