It is important that you know what the symptoms of Prostate Cancer are, as although this is a relatively common form of Cancer, it is also a slow growing one, and the earlier it is detected the sooner it can be treated and not allowed to spread to other parts of the body.
But before you panic, remember that these symptoms are the same as for an enlarged Prostate (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH).
It is vital that you see your Doctor. Never try and self-diagnose, self-medicate or listen to advice from well meaning friends. SEE YOUR DOCTOR.
A blood test (PSA test) will also have to be done which is then sent to a laboratory to test the levels of PSA in the body. The cost of a blood test can vary a lot, ranging from a few hundred dollars to more than a thousand. However, depending on your health insurance and the circumstances surrounding the blood test, you might be able to write the cost off as a tax-deductible medical expense. There are a number of online calculators that can give you a better idea on what you might (or might not) be eligible for.
