One in six men will develop prostate cancer, said Dr. R. Scott Owens of Urology of Central PA, who is not involved in Mr. Wolf’s care. He said that men should get an initial test, which can be a blood test or a prostate exam, early on, and then follow-up tests after that. Men with a family history of prostate cancer and African-American men should get an initial test at 40, and other men between 45 and 50, he said.
