Prostate Cancer Screening
Prostate cancer screening

Primarily for men above 50 who are at average risk of prostate cancer.

Always check with your doctor the risk of prostate cancer and how often you should be checked.

3D Mammogram (for women aged 40 and above)

A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast that looks for changes that may be signs of breast cancer. We recommend women aged 40 and above to take a mammogram.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound helps doctors look at some breast changes, such as lumps (especially those that can be felt) or changes in women with dense breast tissue. We recommend women below 40 take an ultrasound unless for women who has done their mammograms and has suspicious lump detected.

Breast biopsy

When other tests show that you might have breast cancer, you will probably need to have a biopsy. Needing a breast biopsy doesn’t necessarily mean you have cancer. During a biopsy, a doctor will remove cells from the suspicious area so that they can be looked at in the lab to see if cancer cells are present.

There are different kinds of breast biopsies. Ask the doctor which type of biopsy you will have and what you can expect during and after the procedure.

Breast biopsy (FNAC)

In this test, a very thin, hollow needle is attached to a syringe to withdraw a small amount of tissue from a suspicious area.

What is Prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer develops when abnormal cells in the prostate gland grow more quicker than in a normal prostate, forming a malignant tumour. Most prostate cancers grow slower than other types of cancer.

Risk factors

  • As you get older – it mainly affects men over 65
  • If your father or brother has / had prostate cancer
  • If you have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer

Symptoms

Most prostate cancer cases in Malaysia were discovered at a late age in men (mostly are diagnosed after the age of 65) and out of all these cases, 60% were detected at late stages (Stage 3 & 4). This is because the signs & symptoms for prostate cancer are not seen in early stages unless specific screening tests are conducted for early detection.

  • Blood in urine
  • Frequent urination
  • Weak or interrupted urine flow or the need to strain to empty the bladder
  • Pain or burning during urination
Prostate screening antigen (PSA)

PSA is a protein produced by normal, as well as malignant cells of the prostate gland. The PSA test measures the level of PSA in a man’s blood. The blood level of PSA is often elevated in men with prostate cancer.

Ultrasound of abdomen and prostate

An ultrasound helps to see the patient’s prostate gland and to help diagnose symptoms such as difficulty in urinating or an elevated PSA protein in the blood. It’s also used to investigate a nodule found during a rectal exam, detect abnormalities and determine whether the gland is enlarged.
