    Really are annual prostate exams counter productive

    through more study and research many experts discounted the importance of routine mammograms
    for many women, the american cancer society (ACS) is now warning Men that annual screening
    for prostate cancer is also of questionable value through evidence that routine screening
    can cause more harm than good leading to fewer biopsis and treatments can leave men impotent or incontinent.

    Study say you should only be screened if told of a possibility from results of a (PSA) blood test
    men now getting side effects from treatments that can do more harm to the body
    then the disease itself.

    So my question is do you think annual exams really needed or can it be as harmful ??

    Should men get tested about once a year to be safe or part of a full health check-up ??


    As i continue more research on cancer and how it's effecting humankind
