Prostate cancer mainly affects men over 50, and your risk increases as you get older. The average age for men to be diagnosed with prostate cancer is between 65 and 69 years. If you are under 50, your risk of getting prostate cancer is very low. Men under 50 can get it, but it isn’t common. I (Mal) have just recently had a blood test for Prostate Cancer and I am happy to say that it came back negative. It took ten minutes of my time and a few days to get back the results. 

I urge anyone over the age of 50 to contact their GP and arrange for this simple test. You never know, it could just save your life!!!
