It’s critical to draw a distinction between diagnosis and treatment. As someone who was diagnosed with prostate cancer at 53 after it was believed that I had a false positive, I strongly support testing. One in six men will get prostate cancer and it is the leading form of cancer in the U.S. DRE and PSA testing is critical. How an individual chooses to deal with the diagnosis is something for them to decide based on age and individual factors.
